Gluten Free Fennel and Leek Soup

Would you believe fennel is part of the carrot family? With it's aromatic aniseed type flavour it goes great with fish but also works well in a soup. With the onion flavour of leek it is a delicious gluten free and vegan winter warmer filled with so many nutritional benefits, serve with a slab of bread for a hearty lunch.
