Delicious and unique soup with fennel and brown rice. Very healthy and easily adaptable to be vegetarian, or add chicken or turkey sausage for some protein.
In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the grapeseed oil to medium and then add rice. Saute 2 minutes then add the onion, carrot and celery. Saute until the onion is translucent and carrot begins to soften, about 10 to 12 minutes.
While the veggies are sautéing, slice the fennel bulb, using the green stalk if desired. Add the chopped fennel, minced garlic, fennel seeds, rosemary, turmeric, herbes de Provence, and salt. Saute an additional 2 minutes.
Add the chicken/vegetable broth and bring to a full boil. Cover the pot, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 40 minutes.
The soup is ready when the veggies are soft but still al dente. If you prefer very soft veggies, cook longer at a higher temperature.
These chicken noodle bowls are loosely based on Pho, a dish my husband and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at our friends’ house. They do a traditional Vietnamese recipe with beef. The dish has a flavorful beef broth, topped with fresh aromatics and vegetables.
I decided to make this version for my husband who has been sick all weekend with a terrible cold. The ginger root provides a homeopathic element to the broth.
