Safe: for All Diets
Nutrients: excellent source of vitamin C. It is also a very good of dietary fiber, potassium, molybdenum, manganese, copper, phosphorus and folate. In addition, fennel is a good source of calcium, pantothenic acid, magnesium, iron and niacin.
How to Eat: (just a suggestion)
I love to chew on the cold fronds (tastes like black licorice).
Flowers (aka Pollen) add sweet taste of licorice to stews, sauces, soups and meat rubs.
For a hot dish, try sprinkling with salt, pepper (and Parmesan). Drizzle with the oil or ghee. Bake until the fennel is fork-tender and the top is golden brown.
