Recipe Ingredients for Tomato Fennel Soup

2 bulb fennel bulbs
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 medium tomatoes, cored and quartered
4 tbsp,+leaves thyme
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 oz 1-inch-thick slices whole-wheat baguette
2 teaspoons sugar, if needed

Recipe Directions for Tomato Fennel Soup

  1. To make the soup, trim the tops and fronds from the fennel, reserving 8 fronds for garnish. Halve the fennel lengthwise, and remove the cores. Cut the fennel crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the fennel, season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and caramelized, about 25 minutes. Add the tomatoes, thyme, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes break down completely, about 15 minutes. Add the wine, tomato paste and broth, and simmer 20 minutes. Add the bread and soak it in the soup until completely softened, about 5 minutes.

  3. Remove the thyme sprigs, transfer soup to a blender or food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Return to the saucepan. (If you prefer a thinner, smoother soup, strain through a fine-mesh sieve). Heat over medium-low heat until heated through, about 1 minute. If the tomatoes were not ripe summer fruit, taste and add sugar if needed.
