Low Carb Onion Fennel Mushroom Soup

Onion Fennel Mushroom SoupOnion Fennel Mushroom SoupYa know, Onion Fennel Mushroom Soup isn’t the most beautiful soup in the world but the taste and flavor more than makes up its lack of looks.  I have probably made thousands of gallons of soup in my day and there are soups that people seem to order over and over-this was always one of them.  At least for me soups are one of the things I can make in my sleep as they mostly are just prep work and time and this is not much different.  If you have a large family or want leftovers this recipe can easily be doubled and beyond.  As far as I know it, most soups are better the next day anyway.  Served with one of the myriad Salads on this sight you have a complete meal.  The beautiful sheen on the surface of the soup are tiny drops of oil.  If you happen to be a fan of fennel anything then this Cream Of Fennel Soup is just terrific.

Notes
  1. Save a little of the top fennel fronds for garnish.
