Tomato & Fennel Soup Is an Elevated Take on a Family Classic

Nothing is as comforting as a bowl of tomato soup. This version is elevated with the addition of fennel. Serve with crackers, breadsticks or crostini for dipping. 

You'll need:

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (approximately), plus extra for decoration
  • 1/4 cup fennel
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (reserve some for decoration)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the tomatoes (not tomato paste), fennel, garlic and basil in a steamer basket and steam. 
  2. When the tomatoes, garlic and basil are cooked, add the remaining ingredients and use a blender or hand immersion blender to bring to desired texture. 
  3. Add diced tomatoes and reserved basil leaves to the surface for decoration. Serve warm.
