caramelised onion and fennel soup

Uniquely sweet and savoury.

This soup is all about caramelisation. Both onions and fennel are great candidates for caramelising because they contain plenty of natural sugars. Sautéing sliced onion slowly until tender releases the spicy notes and tear-inducing gasses and creates an irresistible combination of savoury and sweet. Fennel adds a depth of complexity and warmth.

This slow cooking step allows the vegetables to release their juices, become translucent and soft before blending into soup. It may take up to an hour but you won't need to hover over the stove - the result is well worth the time. 

Butter offers the richest flavour, but you can caramelise in olive oil or clarified butter (ghee). Once you have your onions and fennel caramelised, simply add all the ingredients into the Vibe Blender stainless steel jug and blend until smooth and creamy. The soup will be piping hot and ready to serve in seconds.

The unique flavour is sensational with a generous grind of black pepper and is lovely with a thick slice of our nut & seed bread. For extra creaminess add some homemade cultured cream and toasted almonds for crunch.
