I stumbled upon TS & JS’s food blog, [eatingclub] vancouver and drooled over almost all of their recipes. Go check them out for sure. The recipe for Cream of Fennel Soup really stuck with me so I whipped up a batch, and we were not disappointed. It is so rich and soothing.
Neither of us was big fans of Fennel; me, because the scent reminded me of black licorice, which I hate and Lenny, well, he had really never eaten it. Then a couple years ago, I made this wonderful salad which called for fresh fennel. We both fell in love with it. Now, I use it in soups, salads, tarts and even to munch on. This recipe is easy and ever so tasty!
