A very delicate, cleansing soup, great even for the summer months. The fennel seeds help to get rid of bloating, so this soup is great if you need to show off a flat tummy in summery clothes! If you have overindulged, maybe eaten too many ice creams and drank a little too many al fresco beers, you could try having this soup in the evening either as a starter or main meal.
- 4-5 celery stalks
- 4-5 carrots
- 8-10 asparagus
- 1 medium brown onion
- half a teaspoon of fennel seeds
- extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 organic stock cube ( Kalo)

Wash and roughly cut the vegetables and put them in pot with some water. Add the stock and fennel seeds, and let it simmer for 30min. When ready, blend until the soup reach a creamy consistency and put back on the stove for 2-3 min. Serve with a sprinkle of good quality olive oil and some grana padano cheese shavings. Enjoy!
