Meatless Day 3 – Fennel Soup with French Toast Croutons

I’ve probably mentioned it before but we’re HUGE fans of Jamie Oliver.  After cooking with fennel for the first time a few weeks ago, I thought it might be nice to give it another go this week for our meatless venture.  In Save with Jamie (our new obsession) there’s a brilliant recipe for Fennel Soup with French Toast Croutons.


Ingredient list (quantities can be found in Save with Jamie)

  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Olive oil
  • Fennel bulbs
  • Vegetable stock
  • Cannellini beans
  • Eggs
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Dried chilli flakes
  • Fennel seeds
  • Ciabatta
  • Yoghurt

It wasn’t a bad meal, but not my fave so far.  I just felt hungry afterwards and didn’t feel uber-satisfied by the soup.  The cheesy french toast crouton thingies though were absolute winners though and I’d sooooo do those again any night.

So far so good though, and I haven’t really had any cravings (other than chocolate) or hankered after any meat yet.
