Fabulous fennel

Leave a comment

For many years fennel bulbs were one of those mysterious vegetables that I would see in the produce section at the grocery store and not give a second glance. I wish I’d given it a chance sooner but I’m glad that I found fennel eventually. Better late than never, right? Fennel is crunchy and slightly sweet. I love it thinly sliced in salads, or added to hearty winter stews, or risotto. It’s got a measly 14 calories per half cup, but it’s also got 23 mg of calcium, 190 mg of potassium, and 12 micrograms of folate, among other nutrients.

This Celery Root and Apple Salad with Hazelnut Vinaigrette is a delicious way to start off your relationship with fennel.
