Fennel & Zucchini Soup

Fennel & Zucchini Soup

A creamy low carb soup made with fennel and zucchini. This is so simple to make and divine to eat. A great combination of flavours too!

There is no mistaking the aroma and taste of this soup..it’s definitely for fennel lovers.   Fennel has a mild aniseed taste.    The zucchini does not add to the taste but helps thicken the soup.   Who needs potatoes when you have zucchini!

Fennel is not always available in the supermarket so when you see it, grab a couple of heads and make this soup!   The bulb offers many nutritional benefits.  It has a healthy amount of fibre and is a good source of  vitamin C, folate and potassium.   The top green fronds can be kept aside and make a pretty garnish.

Although I used vegetable stock, a chicken stock will do.  It’s purely because I am a vegetarian.   Some white wine might be nice too.  Perhaps some in the soup too..cheers!
