Creamy Fennel-Potato Soup

This is a wonderful low FODMAP Soup recipe. This soup does not use the usual milk or cream. The potatoes alone provide a creamy base complemented with a slight anise flavor from the fennel. Usually this recipe requires onions and garlic also. But to replace the onions I added some low FODMAP friendly scallion greens for the garnish.
