For Christmas, my parents gave me Karen Page, The Vegetarian Flavor Bible, which is essentially a giant dictionary of (vegetarian) foods, each one listed with all the other foods they taste good with. As I was flipping through it, I discovered that fennel and butternut squash were supposed to taste good with each other, and with cheese, and the idea for this soup was born. It turned out well!

Dietary and accessibility notes: This soup can be made either vegan (no cheese) or vegetarian (with cheese garnish). It requires some chopping (especially of the fennel bulbs - you could substitute pre-chopped butternut squash, onions, and garlic), and an immersion blender, blender, or food processor for pureeing.

Edited to add: [personal profile] sid has suggested that this might also be good with goat cheese, a suggestion I can only agree with. If so, you may want to increase the salt a little.

From the Co-op's homemade cookbook binder.

Wash and de-stem 1 bunch KALE; chop finely. Pour on 1 TBS OLIVE OIL and 1/4 TBS SALT. Roll up your sleeves and toss and squeeze the kale until it wilts, about 3-5 minutes or so. Let sit 30 minutes.

Dice 1/4 RED ONION. Whisk the juice of a LEMON into a TSP DIJON MUSTARD a pinch of SALT, a grind of PEPPER, and the ONION. Let sit 15 minutes.

Slice or dice 1 AVOCADO & salt lightly; toast 1/2 c[up] ALMONDS and chop; grate/shred 1 peeled CARROT and 1-2 peeled BEETS.

Whisk enough olive oil into mustard-lemond mixture to make a dressing. Add avocado, almonds, and root vegetables to kale and toss. Dress to taste.

Variations:
(1) Use 3-4 beets instead of the carrot. Substitute some grapefruit or orange juice for the lemon juice, and add the flesh of a grapefruit or orange.
(2) Add scallions, sesame, and toasted nori; make the dressing from mirin, sesame oil, tamari, and rice wine vinegar; substitute a very little ginger for the onion.
(3) Substitute for the root vegetables a diced tomato or two and some shaved parmesan.
