Thumbs up Fennel Carrot Soup recipe from LA Times

I'm going to try this this weekend. Sounds great, and easy.

Recipe of the week
Los Angeles Times

Fennel-carrot soup

Total time: 1 hour
Yield: 4 servings

Note: This soup is delicious as is, but a little Dungeness crab on top wouldn't hurt, either.

2 bulbs fennel (about 1 3/4 pounds total)
1/2 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup sliced carrots (2 to 3 carrots)
3 Tbsps. olive oil
1 carton (1 quart) chicken broth
Cracked black pepper

1. Trim the tops and ends of the fennel bulbs. Save a few of the green fronds and chop them for garnish; set aside. Thinly slice the bulbs. You should have about 4 cups sliced fennel.

2. Saute the sliced fennel, chopped onion and sliced carrots in the olive oil in a large saucepan until tender, about 20 minutes.

3. Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer about 20 to 25 minutes, until the vegetables are very tender.

4. Puree with an immersion blender right in the saucepan, or in a food processor in one or two batches, transferring each batch to a clean saucepan or warm tureen.

5. Spoon into serving bowls and sprinkle with chopped fennel fronds and cracked black pepper.

That does sound good, thanks for posting! I've honestly never tried fennel, other than the seed which I'm sure tastes very different from the bulb. This sounds like a good way to give it a try
