Low-Amine Leek Fennel Soup (low-amine, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, nut-free, nightshade-free, tomato-free, low-fat, low-carb, vegetarian, vegan, paleo)

This creamy (dairy-free) simple low-amine soup makes a nice light lunch or a good starter for a meal. It’s an easy way to get your vegetables in, too.

1 1/2 C onion

1 C frozen peas

1 leek, cut lengthwise and then into ovals (set aside 1/2 C for soup topping)

1 medium bulb fennel (about 2 C), shaved (set aside 1/2 C for soup topping)

1 C Italian parsley leaves, chopped

2 large cloves garlic, chopped

1 Tbsp rosemary

1 1/2 tsp ginger, minced

1 Tbsp rubbed sage

1/2 tsp salt (or more, to taste)

1/2 tsp ascorbic cid

1/2 tsp black pepper

4 1/2 C vegetable stock

3 Tbsp safflower oil, divided (2 Tbsp, 1 Tbsp)

  • Set aside 1/2 C leek, 1/2 C fennel, and 1 Tbsp oil in a small separate pan.

  • Add peas, rosemary, sage, salt, ascorbic acid, black pepper, and vegetable stock. Cover and simmer on medium low until very tender, about 10 minutes.
  • While soup is simmering, saute the leek and fennel in the separate pan. Caramelize the ingredients, then set aside.
  • Using an immersion blender or in batches in a food processor, puree the main stock pot soup ingredients until very smooth.

  1. Wow, what great combinations. I have a fennel bulb in the fridge waiting for a recipe like this.

    • I made this last night and it turned out really well. Left out the parsley, sage and ascorbic acid as I didn’t have any on hand. Thanks for the recipe!

      • So glad it turned out well for you! I’ve still got a bit left in the fridge to finish up, and it’s sounding mighty good right about now. 🙂

  2. I’ve got to make this! Thanks for keeping the great recipes coming…your blog is one of the few that consistently features recipes that work for my restrictions!

    • I’m so glad that there are people actually MAKING what I blog about, rather than just reading the recipes! That’s awesome!!!

  3. I made this last night and loved it! Didn’t have any ascorbic acid, though, but it was still perfect! What does the ascorbic acid do?

    • Hurrah! So glad you liked it! Ascorbic acid is basically a way to tart things up a bit – I use it as a substitute for lemon juice, in this case.
