Tomato Soup with Fennel, Leek & Potato
Loaded with fennel and potatoes, this hearty tomato soup is perfect with a grilled cheese sandwich, but a fresh spinach salad would make the meal too. For an elegant twist, try puréeing the soup (see tip below). The Pernod is optional, but we highly recommend including it because it enhances and deepens the fennel flavor beautifully.Serves four to six.Yields 5-1/2 cups.
