I love to share my fennel recipes because fennel is one of those things that gets a lot of confused looks at pickup. I think that fennel is especially yummy in Italian recipes so I whipped up this soup on a recently fall evening. As soon as weather gets cooler AT ALL, I fully embrace it. Considering I live in Central Texas, these “fall days” are sparse but glorious. This came together really quickly, so it worked well at my house on a week night.
