Fennel and Tomato soup with Sussage

3 Tbs. olive oil
1 large fennel bulb, diced (4 cups)
3 vegan Italian sausages, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds (2 cups)
1 tsp. fennel seeds
2 Tbs. dry vermouth, dry white wine, or water
4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1 28-oz. can crushed tomatoes
3 Tbs. chopped fresh Italian parsley

Heat oil in soup pot over medium heat. Add fennel, and sauté 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in sausages and fennel seeds, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until fennel seeds are slightly softened and bits of sausage are stuck to bottom of pan. Add vermouth, and cook 5 to 10 seconds to deglaze pan, scraping up any brown bits. Add broth, tomatoes, and parsley; cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
