Why I Love This Recipe

So easy and warming whats not to like


Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 fennel bulbs, sliced, fronds
reserved
2-3 sticks celery with leaves sliced
1L (4 cups) chicken stock
8 slices bread
1/2 cup grated parmesan


Directions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.


Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the sliced fennel (not the fronds) and fry 5-10 minutes until fennel begins to turn golden. Add the stock, season with salt and pepper and bring to the boil then add celery . Simmer for 10-15 minutes.


Meanwhile, brush the bread on both sides with remaining olive oil, place on a tray and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Top with the grated parmesan and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes or until melted. Finely chop the reserved fennel fronds and add to the soup, stirring to combine. Divide the soup between four bowls and serve with the parmesan toasts.
