We’ve taken everyone’s favorite tomato soup and upgraded it with a uniquely tasty twist! We elevated not only the flavor profile but also the nutrition by including fennel, an anise-flavored bulb from the carrot family. Fennel aids digestion, strengthens immunity, and fights inflammation. When cooked, the flavor becomes very mellow and is a delicious background note to any dish.  Our Fennel & Tomato Soup is "souper" simple to make with just a handful of nutritious ingredients, making it the perfect soup for any season. We hope you enjoy it!
