6 Ways to Fall for Fennel

Posted: 12/12/2012 7:19 am

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

I love the mellow taste of roasted fennel and almonds together, and think the orange-soaked raisins add a nice bit of sparkle to this otherwise rich side dish which I like to serve with roasted chicken. Using a vegetable stock, or water, for the couscous does lighten it up a bit. - Jennifer Ann
