Quick & Easy Homemade Tomato (Fennel) Soup

20 Feb

If you read gossip magazines, you might have come across this recipe in People from a few weeks ago.  The recipe is from Lady Gaga’s family and her parent’s new restaurant.  It is simple to make and delicious to eat!

Note, we forgot to buy fennel at the store so we just omitted it.  The soup still turned out fantastic!

Tomato Fennel Soup

Ingredients

  • 2tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 fennel bulb, chopped
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes

  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Directions

1.  In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add onion, celery, garlic and fennel.  Cook until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.

2.  Add tomatoes and broth; simmer 4 minutes.  Remove from heat; add basil and parsley.  Cool slightly.  Puree in blender.  Season to taste and serve hot.

We served our soup with fresh bread broiled with cheddar cheese.
