  • deep pan
  • cooking pot
  • mixer / blender


  • 3 fennel fresh
  • 1 potato
  • 2 stem celery
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 300 gr corn
  • 1 liter water
  • cube vegetable broth
  • 10 gr parsley fresh
  • white pepper and salt
  • 2 tbl spoon olive oil


  • Cut 2 of the 3 fennels into pieces. Peel the potato and cut into small pieces. Cut the celery stalk into small pieces. Grate the garlic clove.
  • Put 1 tbsp olive oil in a cooking pot and add the chopped vegetables. (fennel, potato, celery, garlic) Stew for a few minutes and then cover with 1 liter of water.
    Add 1+1/2 vegetable stock cubes, stir well and place the stock on the pot. Now let this cook for 20 minutes.
  • At the end add the parsley. Blend the soup into a smooth cream for about 5 minutes. Taste and season with white pepper and salt if necessary.
    This soup doesn't need cream. You will notice that both the taste and texture are velvety soft when you mix enough.
  • Clean the last fennel and cut into 4 or 6 parts. Put 1 tbsp olive oil in a deep pan and place the fennel ring. Cook for 1 minute on both sides. Cover with 250 ml of water, put the lid on the pan and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Then add another 100 ml of water and turn the fennel onto the other side. Put the lid back on the pan and let it cook for another 10 minutes. Then it should be done.
  • Place the corn in a colander and let it drain.
  • Place a few scoops of the soup in each soup bowl. Add a wedge of braised fennel and add 2 tbsp corn. Finish with some dill, fennel greens or sprouts. You can also add bread crusts, the kids always love that.
