leek, fennel, apple and walnut soup with turmeric

Sometimes things are not as they appear. Take this soup, for instance. From the look of it and the time I am posting you would say, This must be a squash soup. And, if not, surely a sweet potato one. It's just gotta be!

Surprise - there's no pumpkin in this baby. But it still tastes like fall in a bowl - all warm and stormy and complex.

Soup in Autumn is a beautiful thing. This soup is extra beautiful: super tasty, full of nutrients and vitamins, despite the weird fennel inclusion. Don't let that deter you. You barely taste the licorice and it adds a wonderful nuance to the flavor. I found it at The First Mess and will definitely make this again before the season is out.



  1. G'day and wow, was really surprised no pumpkin in the soup, true!
    This is now on my list! Stunning photo too!
    Cheers! Joanne

  2. Beautiful soup!! You definitely fooled me with that color, but turmeric does magical things I suppose. :)
