When it comes to fennel, you either do or don’t like it. I really like it. Especially now when the season starts. It’s is a wonderful vegetable with a multitude of uses and is very suitable for chicken, fish and rich vegetable dishes. This soup is a perfect way to open up the holiday meal- it’s light and delicate, yet distinctive and unusual. The addition of caramelized fennel also gives a festive dimension to the soup, if it’s too much of a fuss for you, skip it, and just sprinkle some toasted almonds or pine nuts and a drizzle of olive oil for color.

Using a mandoline saves a ton of time and will ensure that all ingredients are uniform in size. Not only does it look pretty, but it will also help the apples and vegetables cook evenly.
