Shaved Fennel in Lemon Broth

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Fresh fennel has a delicate crunch and a mild lemon-anise flavor that’s perfect in cold summer soups. Shaving fennel into paper-thin strips is a snap with a mandoline, but you can also do it with a knife. Simply quarter the fennel bulb, then cut each quarter into thin slices. Enjoy this soup on its own, or with sprouted or cooked wild rice stirred in for a heartier dish.
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ½ clove garlic, minced (½ tsp.)
  • 1 small fennel bulb, shaved (½ lb.)
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped, for garnish (2 Tbs.)

1. Blend oil, lemon juice, garlic, and 3 cups water in blender until smooth and no large droplets of olive oil remain. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

2. Divide soup among 4 serving bowls. Top each serving with 1/4 cup shaved fennel and 1 & 1/2 tsp. green onion.

This is a favorite in our household, although we like to blend the fennel rather than adding shaved pieces to the soup. Easy to make and tasty!
