Delicious Soup
  • 2 1/2 cups organic chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups chopped fennel
  • cup sliced leek (white and light green parts)
  • 2 tablespoons lightly packed fennel fronds
  • teaspoon dried tarragon
  • teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup of milk or additional broth (optional)
  1. In a 2-quart saucepan, bring the broth and water to a boil.
  2. Add the broccoli, fennel, leek, fennel fronds, tarragon, and pepper; return to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 40 minutes or until vegetables are very soft.
  4. Pour the soup into a blender or food processor fitted with a steel blade.
  5. Cover and process until smooth.
  6. Season with salt, adding enough milk or additional broth to make a soup that is very thick but still pours easily into a bowl—or to desired consistency.
