Here we are, the final recipe to result from last weekend's super making binge - Fennel Chicken and Sausage Soup!
This one was actually inspired by a chicken bratwurst I tried one time, which involved apple and fennel. I thought it would be fun to build a soup around those flavours, and took it a step further with some sweet Italian sausage. Everything works together so well, producing a flavourful, unique soup... and it's kind of pretty, too!
This soup is a stark contrast to my Beef Stew which is hearty and rustic, and my Roasted Cauliflower Soup which was quick and simple. Yep, it involves making chicken broth a day before making the actual soup.
It's a little bit of extra work, but TOTALLY worth it - you don't get this kind of flavour from a can! Stock making is a lost art, and really does give you great results for very little cost. It's also healthier than canned stuff, and you get to have the extra pride that comes from really making your soup from scratch!

|Interested in Gluten-free cooking and baking? You'll LOVE Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!
How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.
