Fennel

Fennel

Fennel has a wonderful and unique flavour with a strong sweet licorice/aniseed like overtone. It pairs well with toasted or raw nuts, roasted veg, chicken, fish, rice and pasta.

Suggested Use:

Can be eaten raw or cooked. Use in place of celery or parsley in a recipe.

Recipe idea

My favourite recipe is orange braised fennel.

Simply chop the fennel into slices, fry in olive oil/butter until beginning to brown, then add 50ml of orange juice and simmer gently for 5-10minutes, top up with 100ml of vegetable or chicken stock, add seasoning to taste and boil gently until fully softened. This makes a wonderful side dish/starter.

You can turn it into a main dish by serving with chicken, fish or some lightly toasted or raw nuts.
