Recipe: Fabulous Fennel Soup

Recipe: Fabulous Fennel Soup

 

To many of us, fennel is often an unknown quanitity… what to do with this funny looking vegetable that turns up in abundance at this time of year?!?

 

However, fennel is

  • fabulous for reducing inflammation
  • high in vitamin C
  • and is excellent for our joints.

 

Fennel is also known for

  • containing significant levels of potassium and folate
  • and is a wonderful source of dietary fibre that limits build up of cholesterol.

 

Go fennel!!!

And at such a cheap price this time of year (I bought 3 for $5 this morning at the vegetable market)… give it a go!

Fennel has a lovely mild sweet flavour and goes beautifully with leek and potatoes. The perfect winter comfort soup 🙂
