Awesome Fennel Curry Soup - The healthy bomb for your body

Hey guys,

Over the last months I tried out some new recipes and the following one is one that I can really recommend because it's unbelievable tasty and healthy!
Fennel has so many health benefits that I haven't enough space in one article to describe all of them in detail, but it should be mentioned that it could help to prevent cancer, reduce inflammation, fight intestinal problems (like the formation of too much gas ;) ), lower blood pressure and it could help to improve the milk supply of breastfeeding mothers. It is also very high in antioxidatives and fibres.
The bottom line is that fennel is really, really good for your body! Onions, ginger, garlic, chili, curry and fennel seeds support the health benefits of the fennel even more, so that this soup becomes a healthy bomb that'll support you in getting or staying fit and healthy.

That should be enough about the benefits...here's how you can cook it:

Ingredients:


- 1 red onion
- 2 fennel bulbs
- 34 fl.oz. (approx. 1 liter) organic fluid vegetable stock
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 fresh chili pepper (or 1-2 dried chilis)
- 1 tsp. fennel seeds
- 1 tsp. curry powder
- 1 thumb-sized pc. fresh ginger
- 7 oz. (approx. 200g) cream
- 2 tbsp. (approx. 30g) butter
- 1/2 fl.oz. (approx. 15 ml) olive oil

Preperation:
