    1. Anyone else plan to make it just with onions, no fennel?

      My husband has a major dislike of fennel, so I was going to just use all onions. Ina said it’s based on a french onion soup, so I figure that’s exactly what I’ll end up with!

    3. I was so excited to make this soup and unfortunately I found it a little lacking in the flavor dept…I kept thinking that I should add some thyme but I wanted to stay true to the recipe. I felt like the combination of beef stock and bay leaf may have made the soup a little bitter….or maybe I was just having a bad cooking day. I am curious to see what others thought.

    4. I really enjoyed the soup. I made it with both onion and fennel, which lost the licorice taste when cooking. I did add extra bay leaves, salt and pepper to flavor the broth a bit more. I’ll definitely be making this again!
