Green Fennel Soup

Green Fennel Soup

This healthy soup is the veggie-packed meal our entire family of all ages enjoys (very kiddo approved). Being one of the healthiest, nutrient-dense dish I feed my family, I’m glad it’s also absolutely delicious. You will never guess it’s loaded with greens, or contains something unusual in it like fennel. With a base of homemade bone broth, this is a great go-to soup. Especially if you’re feeling unwell or just want to boost your immune system!

Adapting this recipe from one I found by Kay Chun, I have been making it for years now, always slightly different from the original. Making a larger batch at a time allows me to have a stock of this in the freezer. I always make this using homemade chicken bone broth (or turkey broth, if I have it from the holidays). I have also tried various mixes of different greens over the years, it’s very versatile. My version of “Creamy Fennel & Greens Soup” goes by “Green Soup” by our kiddos.

Because we eat this soup on a regular basis, I especially love it when we need a “meatless” night. When we are fighting off an illness, it is especially handy. This is because it is so packed with nutrients from the greens and bone broth.

Yum!! My kids haven’t tried it yet and I’m pretty sure my 4 year old is going to say something hilarious when he sees it… But my husband and I thought it was great. The seasonings are all perfect and I didn’t need to add anything else. The ratio of liquid to vegetables is perfect for a puréed soup. I made it simple and tossed in 2 lbs of frozen chopped collard greens and used frozen chopped spinach so I wouldn’t have to chop fresh greens. Served it with homemade artisan crusty bread (warmed and slathered in butter) made from 100% freshly milled hard red wheat.
