I know I have said it before, but I love the mystery of having a weekly vegetable box delivered.
You just never know what is going to be inside.
Like on this occasion a little while ago, when I opened the box to find this beautiful fennel inside.
I decided to keep things simple. I washed and quartered the fennel…
Sautéed it in a little butter…
Then added some dried rosemary and a splash of balsamic vinegar for flavour.
Simmered (turning) until the fennel was tender, and the balsamic had reduced.
Soft, sticky, sweet fennel, that worked perfectly as a side dish to the other deliciousness on our plates.
Grilled haloumi, a spinach puree and a sweet potato with a little sour cream.
A random plate for sure – but a tasty one nonetheless!
What about you? Are you a fan of fennel?
