Fennel

Collection of fennel recipesjump to the recipes

Fennel is often mislabeled as "anise" because it does have an anise-like flavor which mellows when cooked. The entire fennel plant is edible. The bulb can be used raw in salads, or braised or stir-fried. The stems make great seasoning for stocks and broths and can be finely chopped to use in cooking like celery. The ferny fronds make a nice garnish and can be used like dill weed.

To prepare fennel, cut the stems off where the bulb starts turning darker green. Then, cut like an onion by slicing it in half lengthwise (through the stem end). Trim and discard the bottom end. Place cut-side down and slice crosswise into crescent shaped slices.

Fennel is an excellent source of potassium and it also contains Vitamin C and folic acid.

If you can't get fresh fennel you can substitute celery or bok choy with one teaspoon of crushed fennel seeds per pound of vegetables. If you prefer less anise flavor, simply reduce the amount of fennel seeds when substituting.
