I am forever trying to get my wife to try new edibles but I was hard-pressed to get her to try fennel. When I had her try this she loved it, and when I told her what was in it... well, she didn't believe me. Oh well... it's still all good!

How to Make Creamy Potato and Fennel Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt butter in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add leeks and fennel and sauté until leeks are translucent, about 7 minutes. Add broth and potatoes and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer soup until potatoes are very tender, about 25 minutes. Using a stick blender, purée soup to a very smooth texture. Rewarm soup if necessary. Season with salt and pepper and mustard. Ladle soup into bowls; garnish with reserved fennel fronds and serve.
