    A real winner! We loved this soup, and not only is it delicious, it's super healthy too. I wouldn't change much, but you can play with it a little to suit your tastes. But don't play around with the recipe TOO much, because it truly is fantastic!!!  -  03 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I just made this exactly as directed (except i wasn't brave enough to use a WHOLE fennel) and it's truely delish! I'm trying out different root vegetables as a substitute for potatoes at the moment - as directed by my dietitian, and this recipe is definately at the top of my list! I've kept some portions in the fridge and i may try adding nutmeg when i reheat it as erimousch suggested  -  17 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This is packed with veg and turned out to be really delicious - perfect for this winter weather! I also added nutmeg (just like erimousch suggested). I loved the flavour the fennel added.  -  03 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
