Wow, that does sound good and I totally adore fennel and leaks. I have that cookbook, but I haven't quite gotten around to it yet. I'll pull it off the shelf soon, thanks to this post! I love the look of garnish floating on top. Just beautiful!


I need to stop reading your blog when I'm hungry - everything you make looks SO GOOD!!!


I love fennel but never try to use i in soup before. I love the shot of your soup bowl - so comfy!


Delicious! I love fennel in any way, shape or form. This looks so good and easy.


Oh my! That sounds so delicious!! I'll have to show Isaac so he can make it for me. He'll be head over heels. I'm glad this fall is being all golden and shiny and warm for you. Makes the transition that much easier, doesn't it?


I haven't tried that one yet. Looks fabulous. Maybe I should have gotten THAT cookbook instead of the other one.


At the rugby games in Wales, everyone waves inflatable leeks... and daffodils.


This soup sounds delicious. Your picture is also lovely. Love this blog!


Fennel seriously rocks; I don't know why it is not more popular. Anyway, I really enjoy garnishing fennel soup with orange zest, both for look and the classic pairing of flavors. Of course, the Pernod helps take care of the flavor pairing too.


Ooooh, I like this anise, super anise flavour here. The cream would mellow it just enough.


OOh Julie! That soup looks incredibly creamy! I have never used fennel in a recipe before! (other than seeds..)


I've eaten potato and leek soup, and potato and fennel soup, but I never thought to try combining leek and fennel.

This one goes on the to-do list.


Beautiful! I love those fennel fronds floating in it - the perfect garnish to a perfect-sounding soup. Now, if I could just find myself some leeks here...


My winter garden isn't growing fast enough - I want to try this now!


I love fennel, and I'm always looking for new recipes. I'll definitely be giving this one a try! And the photo of it is beautiful!

It's no longer soup season here, Julie, but this is tempting! Love both flavors and haven't had them in quite a while.

thank you


Dang, that looks pretty easy!


ohhh yum! fennel and leek together sounds delicious!!


This looks fantastic...I can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing!

I'm a more recent convert to fennel, so I'm still discovering all the wonder ways to cook with it. This soup does look lovely, and I'm bookmarking.

i love that photo! did you mean for the fennel to look like trees on a snowy winters day or did they just do it themselves? so pretty.

also it has come to my attention that my haphazard attempts at soup improvisation are never particularly fulfilling, so i definitely need to adopt a few more recipes to my repertoire - will definitiely have to try this one out...


That looks so beautiful! I will try it.

I LOVE fennel and I'm so glad that soup season is back.


This looks fantastic!!!!! I love these two flavors!

I completely agree with you about the Herbfarm cookbook - it's one of my favorites. As for your soup, it's gorgeous and sounds very delicious.

It has become one of my favourite soups of the season! So simple and so delicious! I would advise anyone to give it a go if they have fennel and leek hanging around in the cupboards!

Dog In The Car

What a delicious sounding recipe! I'm printing this and going to add it to my fridge with a magnet for trying! Thanks again ...

Crystal Santos

Thanks for this! Beautiful recipe and so easy!

Leek Soup

I hope you all enjoyed the chill evening. You made a right choice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrSTQDVc0tc Always love to have Fennel Leek Soup. I am a huge fan of fennel. I love this recipe, and the soup looks delicious.


This is so good, so creamy for a non dairy recipe- didn't have pernod, so I added some fennel seeds from the plant in the garden. I'm hoping it freezes well.

Ow, thank God I found this recipe! I've been searching for soup recipes so I can include it in my meal plan for this coming week. I avoid eating much solid foods because my dentist in Miami, FL extracted my tooth. Maybe on 1st week of April my mouth is totally healed.
