Ingredients

  • 24

    garlic cloves peeled, halved

  • 4

    cups water or more if needed

  • 2 1/2

    cups half-and-half

  • 3

    medium fennel bulbs cut 1/2" pieces

  • 2

    tablespoons finely-chopped fennel fronds plus

  • additional for garnish

  • 1/2

    cup pine nuts toasted

Directions

Bring garlic, 4 cups water, and half-and-half to boil in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer until garlic is very soft, about 30 minutes. Add fennel and 2 tablespoons chopped fronds; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer until fennel is very soft, about 30 minutes. Working in batches, puree soup in blender, adding more water by 1/2 cupfuls as needed for smooth texture. Season with salt and pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Rewarm soup over low heat.) Ladle into bowls. Sprinkle with additional fennel fronds and pine nuts. This recipe yields 8 servings.
