Leek and Fennel Soup
Enjoy this original, homemade Leek and Fennel Soup which is creamy and deliciously filling. I use about a pound of potatoes for this recipe and 3 large leeks. Fennel, leeks and garlic are my go to ingredients for flavor in the soup and I add a thick heavy cream to bring it all together. Garnish with some fennel fronds and thick-cut, turkey bacon for the finishing touches.
To make Leek and Fennel Soup, you will need the following ingredients:
Steps to make Leek and Fennel Soup
In a medium-sized heavy bottom pot over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons of olive and add 3 thinly sliced, large leeks, 1 bulb of thinly sliced fennel, 2 thinly sliced celery stalks, 3 cloves of minced garlic, and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt. Sauté, for about 5-7 minutes until vegetables have softened.
Add vegetable broth
Add heavy cream
So simple and tasty the bacon is such a nice touch too makes the soup slightly chunky.
Obsessed with this fennel soup with bacon, had it with a side of cheesy garlic bread :)
Used normal pork bacon instead of turkey but it's freaking delicious no matter what kind you use.
My kids favorite soup soley because of the amount of bacon I always add to it haha.
Lilly never fails to amaze me with her recipes! Going to be sharing this everywhere!!
Love the texture of this soup added a bit of hot sauce in it too yummy!
Fantastic appetizer this is so filling and will help keep your tummy full while you're waiting on the main course.
Grainy but good just wish it wasn't so heavy but it's good for a lunch on it's own with some bread.
Filling and simple leek and fennel soup, happy to have perfected this meal on the first try!
I love it! So delicious!
