I just tried this from a cookbook I got for Christmas: a totally FF recipe in the middle of a SAD cookbook (Recipes 1-2-3, Rozanne Gold). Here, with my comments in (()): Cut off the fennel fronds from the fennel bulb and reserve for ganrish. Remove any brown spots from the fennel bulb, dice. Clean the leeks thoroughly and dice finely--you should have 4 cups. Put 8 cups of water in a large, heavy pot and bring to a boil. Add the fennel, leeks, and orzo and 1 1/2 tsp salt. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer 50 minutes. With a large ladle, remove 4 cups of soup from the pot and puree until smooth in a food processor. Return the soup to the pot and continue to cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to tast. Chop the fennel fronds aund use them for garnish ((we skipped all this, but did find some salt and a couple drops of hot pepper stuff were good in it. They also suggested Parmesan cheese; you could add FF Parmesan but I dont think it needs it)). Makes 10 servings. Well, obviously you could cut the recipe in half. It gets thicker the next day.
