Life List Day 63 - Try Fennel
I love licorice and heard that fennel is a veggie that tastes sort of like it. For my life list today, I thought I'd give it a try.
I sliced up the bulb part, and threw it in a foil packet with a chicken breast and cherry tomatoes, and then baked it.
All I can say is, I could eat this stuff by the truckload. The texture is a bit like celery, and the taste definitely has a hint of licorice and sweetness, but not overpowering. It's no Twizzlers, but as veggies go, it rocks.
Anyone have any tips for other ways to prepare it?
