Braised Fennel

Braised Fennel

Fennel is one of those vegetables that not everyone is familiar with. You can eat it raw in a salad, braised as a side dish or grilled on the bbq.

I personally like braised fennel and eat it as a side. In this case, I used Indian flavors with turmeric and honey to give it a nice color and slightly sweet flavor.

If you don’t like to waste food like me, you can use three parts of the fennel:

  1. The bulb, which is the white portion of the fennel which has a slight anise flavor.
  2. The branches which have a vibrant green color and have a stronger anise flavor.
  3. The fennel leaves which add nice flavor raw to a salad or in a cooked meal.
