I stumbled upon this when searching for a recipe to use the fennel I got from my produce co-op. It was delicious! I had to make a few substitutions because I didn't have all of the ingredients on hand: great Northern beans for chickpeas and dried herbs for fresh. When I mixed the spices I went easy on it for the kids, but ended up adding more later. The spice combination is delicious. I had reservations as I cooked the fennel (like the previous reviewer I preferred mine softer, so I cooked them until almost caramelized-next time I will chop smaller) and wasn't sure what to think of the french onion soup, but it came together beautifully. We served ours over cooked lentils. This is definitely a keeper!

I was giving this three stars when I first tasted it, but by the end of my bowl, I was in love! I made it exactly as written. The flavors grow in your mouth, although I would not call it spicy, it is FULL of flavor.

The fennel gave this a really unique taste, though I let them cook a little bit longer than specified because I prefer them softer.
