Recipe's preparation

    Add the butter, and saute 100°C, speed 1, 5 mins.


    Add fennel seeds, vinegar, water, stock concentrate and potatoes (or rice) and cook 100°C, speed 1, 12 mins.


    [see Safety Note below, then proceed]


    Ensure you have not exceeded maximum volume in the bowl (2L), and then blitz soup 1min, speed 9 gradually increasing from speed 1 to 9.


    Serve dolloped with yoghurt, or sour cream, or parmesan cheese, and sprinkle with crumbled pancetta (optional) and the snipped fennel leaves.


    ***SAFETY NOTE*** Depending on the size of the vegetables used, you may have exceeded the maximum capacity of your bowl. Maximum volume is 2L, and you may prefer it to be less when blending hot liquids. If you have exceeded 2L, ladle some soup out to a bowl, and blend in 2 batches.
