Fennel

Fennel Fennel has a very distinct licorice flavor, so it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. I happen to love it. This veggie, which originates in the Mediterranean, lends itself nicely to be eaten raw, roasted or sauteed. You can even find or make fennel tea. And all parts of the plant are edible!…
