Easy Fennel Soup

This soup was easy to make and fun! I had never worked with fennel before. It is quite delicious! I saved some for later to snack on raw. Fennel is quite exotic looking with it's huge edible onion-like bulb, bright green foliage that looks like dill, and fibrous stalks that look and cut like celery. The flavor of it is like licorice, only it's healthy! When you cook it down in soup with the beef, the fennel's flavor becomes so mild and comforting. This soup was so warm and satisfying Anthony went back to the stove for seconds!

Easy Fennel Soup:

5 Cups Water
1 Lb. Ground Beef
2/3 Bulb of Fennel
2 Cups Egg Noodles
Salt & Pepper

1. Bring 3 cups water and ground beef to a boil.
2. Chop fennel and add to water and beef.
3. Add noodles and 2 more cups of water. Salt and pepper to taste.
