Recipe Ingredients for Carrot and Fennel Soup

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 bulb fennel bulbs
2 1/4 pounds carrots, thickly sliced
2 clove garlic
10 cups vegetable broth
1 salt to taste
3 cups cooked wild rice
5 tablespoons orange juice

Recipe Directions for Carrot and Fennel Soup

  1. Heat the olive oil in your largest soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the fennel (chopped) and cook for 3-4 minutes, until softened a bit.

  2. Stir in the carrots and cook another 10 minutes, just long enough for them to soften a touch and start taking on a bit of color. Stir in the garlic and cook another 30 seconds. Stir in the broth.

  3. Bring to a simmer and simmer, covered, until the carrots are very tender, another 15-20 minutes or so. Stir in the wild rice, bring back to a simmer, taste and add more salt if needed

  4. Remove from heat and stir in the orange juice. Taste and add more if needed. Serve with a sprinkling of the reserved fennel fronds on top.
