In a medium-sized pot, heat the oil on medium heat and fry the onion and fennel, until soft and lightly golden.
Stir in the potato and tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.
Add the cumin powder and black pepper and mix well.
Pour in the water, bring to boil, cover and cook on low heat for 15 minutes or until all the vegetables are cooked through.
Finish with the salt.
Blend the cooked vegetables in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy.
Transfer into bowls and garnish with seeds and pomegranate kernels. Add the cumin powder and black pepper and mix well.
If you're chopping the vegetables using a knife, try and make sure your veggies are similar in size. That way, they will cook evenly
Make sure to fry the onion and fennel until softened and lightly brown as this will add a great depth of flavour to the soup
You can easily adjust the spiciness of the soup by adding more or less black pepper
Make sure to cover the pot after adding the water to stop the soup from reducing too much
Blending the soup will create a creamy consistency. You can easily control the consistency of your soup by using the pulse function on your blender
