1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 small onion, very finely chopped Large pinch of ground fennel 1 garlic clove, very finely chopped 3 medium fennel bulbs, cored and cut into small pieces, feathery tops chopped 1 large red potato, peeled and diced 5 cups homemade or canned low-sodium chicken stock 1/2 cup heavy cream Salt and freshly ground pepper
Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and the ground fennel and cook over moderate heat until the onion softens, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add the pieces of fennel bulb, potato and stock and bring to a boil; simmer until the fennel is tender, about 15 minutes.
Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender or food processor. Strain the soup into a clean saucepan, stir in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Serve the soup in bowls, sprinkled with the chopped fennel tops.
