  • 1 bulb Fennel Bulk
  • 5 7/16 cup Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 1 2/3 serving Frozen Sweet Peas
  • 0 2/3 tbsp chopped Shallots
  • 0 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tbsp Peppermint (Mint)

  2. Add broth and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes, until fennel is very soft. Strain broth into a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In a blender, starting on low speed and increasing to high, purée peas, shallots and fennel, using reserved fennel broth to about 1-inch under the solids (depending on size of blender, this may take 2 to 3 batches).

  5. Place soup back into saucepot on medium heat and bring to a simmer. Finish with cream, mint and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve hot or chill in an airtight container until cold.

Cooking Tip

Did you know that you can easily portion out and freeze soup to save for a busy night down the road? When ready to reheat, either microwave or heat up in a pot over the stove with a splash of water.
