I got some fennel from the market Saturday. I'm not a big licorice fan but the taste is pretty light and it pairs well with apples and taste good roasted. Lets eat fennel!!
Ideas on Different Ways to Enjoy It.
1) Roasted- For a side dish, thickly slice fennel and add sliced onions, carrots, sea salt and thyme. Coat with little olive oil and roast at 400 degrees until tender.
2) Shaved or sliced paper thin- Slice fennel and apples thinly on mandolin. Toss with a vinaigrette made with rice wine vinegar and olive oil and a pinch of crushed Jamaican allspice .
3) Caramelized - Slowly saute sliced fennel in vegetable oil with garlic and onions. Serve with brown rice, roasted lamb or chicken.
