Fun with Fennel
Fun fact: Fennel is in the same family as carrots. With its green fronds and black licorice flavor, fennel is decidedly different from its veggie cousin.
Licorice lovers love raw fennel for its anise-forward flavor and crunch. Cooked fennel, meanwhile, is softer in texture and flavor – it’s sweet and mild, perfect for soups, stews, and so much more. We’re fans of fennel for its vitamins and health benefits for skin, circulation, and digestion.
This spring vegetable makes for a wonderful main dish, side, or crispy addition to a salad. The possibilities are endless, but let’s start with a few of our fave fennel recipes:
