Creamy fennel and leek soup. Used cauliflower to thicken and milk instead of cream.

Recipe Ingredients for Leek & Fennel Soup

1 onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 fennel bulbs (stalks removed), chopped
3 leeks
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
6 cups chopped cauliflower
1 quart chicken stock
1 cups water
2 cups 2% milk
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

Recipe Directions for Leek & Fennel Soup

  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter in olive oil over medium-low heat.  Add onions, leeks, and fennel and cook, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes, or until vegetables are softened and just starting to take on a bit of color.

  2. Add the chopped cauliflower, the quart of stock, and enough water so that the vegetables are just barely covered with liquid (I added about a cup of water).  Turn up the heat, and bring the soup up to a simmer.  Cover, turn heat to low and let simmer for 30 minutes.

  3. Remove pot from heat, and puree soup in the pot with an immersion blender. Alternately, you could puree the soup in batches in a blender or food processor (make sure to let it cool first!) and then return the soup to the pot.

  4. Add the milk, and season to taste with salt and white pepper.  Return to low heat and cook until the soup is warmed through, but don?t let it boil.  Serve immediately.
