July 22, 2011 by Leanne Vogel November 8, 2017You have 60 minutes before a group of your closest friends show up for a dinner party and you forgot to make an appetizer. What do you do? a) Run around the house like a chicken with your head cut off [an expression my mom always used… and lived constantly]. b) Head out to the local M&M meat market to buy random packs of processed appetizers. c) Zoom over to the grocery store to pick up 1 fennel bulb, 1 can of chickpeas, and a handful of veggies. If you picked c we’re on the same wavelength, because that’s exactly what I did last weekend! I’ve never grilled fennel before. And combined with hummus? Hubba hubba!
It’s crunchy, slightly sweet, and adds an aromatic and refreshing taste to salads, soups, and grilled veggies.My first experience with fennel was when I used it instead of onions in a batch of carrot soup, landing on what is now known as Vegan Creamy Carrot Fennel Soup. I bet serving this soup cold with a couple of fresh veggie sticks would make for a fantastic summer meal! And, did you know that this fun ingredient actually has some amazing health benefits, too?
