Fennel isn't one of those vegetables you have to make yourself forget once winter rolls around. This is a lucky thing, because its anise-y aroma and crunchy texture are an excellent complement to so many foods and flavors. These six fennel dishes show fennel's great range of possibilities -- this veggie is equally delightful in a light, refreshing salad as it is in a cheesy baked gratin.
These recipes are especially great if you're vegetarian or vegan. Generally just a vegetable lover? Food52 is always digging up the facts on all sorts of fruits and veggies. Brought to you by the spirited home cooks' community at Food52
