oh man guys… you know, i’ve professed my love to ina before on this blog. i can totally forgive the fact that she only ever wears black collared shirts because, let’s be serious, the woman is a genius in the kitchen. a genius! when you cook that well, you’ve earned the right to wear whatever the heck you want. anyway, here’s one more recipe that pretty much seals the deal in my book: she is my favorite celeb-cook. there! i said it!
if you like soups and you like croutons, and that should be all of you, then this soup is for you. you might’ve seen the start of it on instagram. it was my first time (first time!) with fennel (or anise… it’s what my grocery store had!). i was a little unsure if i was even chopping it properly, but i just went for it. and man, it did not disappoint. not the anise, the tomatoes, the basil… none of it! it was sooooo good, so flavorful, and totally cozy. make it. don’t make me tell you again! and don’t skip the croutons and buy silly store-bought bagged ones instead! i warned ya!
