Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4-5 garlic cloves
  • 1 fennel bulb (stalks removed, cut into ½ inch pieces)
  • 2 ½ cups broth of choice
  • 2 granny smith apples, (chopped into bite-size pieces)

Directions

  1. Place medium-sized pot over medium heat.
  2. Add olive oil. Cook garlic until just brown, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add cut fennel bulb (with some fennel leaves) to the pot, cook for 3-5 minutes until brown.
  4. Add broth and bring heat up to high to create a roaring boil for about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Once soup has developed more flavor and has slightly reduced, reduce heat to a low simmer and add chopped granny smith apples.
  6. Simmer for about 10 more minutes until apple has softened. Puree with an immersion blender for a smooth texture, or keep it simple and leave as is.
