Fennel Apple Soup

It seems that Fennel Apple Soup is on everyone’s radar these days.  And what better time than now?!  It’s perfect soup weather here in Boulder –a toasty -2 outside, which begs for soup.

Gluten free Fennel Apple Soup has been popping up everywhere –on various gluten free yahoo groups and in various magazines.  Here’s my version.

I just received my copy of Stephanie O’Dea’s (crockpot365.blogspot.com) Make It Fast, Cook It Slow and am chomping at the bit to try some of her recipes.  The meatloaf looks especially enticing.

In book news, my gluten free cookbook, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook was listed in the latest issue of Publisher’s Weekly.  And I have several media events coming up before the holidays.  A radio interview on Epicurean Corner, a TV appearance on Good Day Colorado and another TV appearance on Daybreak on the Deuce.  I will provide air dates and times for all of the above later this week.

Finally, Greg Mowery of stovetopreadings.blogspot.com reviewed The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook, saying, “Amsterdam offers a fine group of tasty desserts such as Classic Carrot Cake, Choclate Velvet Torte, Chocolate Cranberry Biscotti, Pear Crisp and Pecan Pie.”  Thanks Greg, I hope you have a lot of fun with these recipes and all of the others in my book!

  1. Elana,
    This soup is awesome! It has so much flavor. My family and I will be making a lot of your soups in the next couple weeks to get extra healthy before Thanksgiving. You should come out with a soup cookbook!

  2. I really wanted to like this soup- but can’t say it was very good. I even grew the fennel myself too. Oh well, never know till you try it! At least it was healthy.

  3. This recipe is AWESOME! I didn’t measure the amount of ground thyme I used and I added garlic salt because I got low sodium chicken broth. The flavors compliment each other so well and I’m pretty much obsessed with soups right now.. so perfect :)
