So I bought some fennel, and I have no idea what to do with it

Recommended Posts

I chop up the fennel bulb and stir fry it lightly with chopped tomato and mix it with cooked pasta..you can flavour with a touch of soy sauce (it will bring out tomato, fennel flavours).  It makes a very light meal, dress up with fennel fronds.  

One can also roast cut fennel bulb.  

YOu can also make a lovely fennel slaw by grating it, mixing it lightly with olive oil, grated lemon and lemon juice.  Let it marinate for 15 min.  It makes sophisticated side dish. http://chefmichaelsmith.com/recipe/lemon-fennel-slaw/  We have sprinkled with pomengranate seeds just before serving.  It looks and tastes lightly festive.

I used it to flavour biscuits last summer.  Then stuffed the biscuits with pulled pork..  It was very good.  I miss summer. 

Summer is the only worthwhile season.  Well, half of spring and the first half of fall is nice, too.

You can make winter fennel, sage and kale pasta

or a fennel and peach salad

or linguine with fennel and winter greens

or lemon fennel toasts

I don't cook, but the recipes on Love and Lemons blog are so appetizing that it almost makes me think about it.   If you use the search function for fennel you'll find a bunch more recipes.
