Ingredients: 

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
2 cups sliced leek, white and light green parts only, washed
Ingredient Line: 
4 cups unsalted vegetable stock
Ingredient Line: 
4 cups sliced fennel bulb
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. kosher salt
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup loosely packed fresh spearmint leaves

Instructions: 

  1. Heat oil over medium heat in saucepan, and sauté leeks until soft. Add stock, fennel bulb and salt. Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until fennel is very tender, about 40 minutes.
