These fennel recipes, aka Fenchel, are both traditional German ones and non-traditional. Easy to make, delicious to eat, and so different! Fennel is one of those German vegetables that finds itself being used both raw and cooked. If you've never tasted fennel, you're in for a surprise. It tastes like anise! It becomes quite mild, though, when it is roasted. Vegan? Then the first recipe is for you!
Here the fennel is one of my easy side dishes that will WOW your guests. So mild when roasted, it pairs with almost anything!
To prepare the fennel, cut off the roots at the bottom. Remove some of the tough outer leaves and trim away the top leafy section.
If you've ever wondered how to cook fennel, use one of the above methods, and then change them to suit your own tastes.
For example, the roasted fennel tastes great when it's sprinkled with bread crumbs or Parmesan cheese for the last few minutes of roasting.
