Sauteed Fennel with Raisins

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I love to saute vegetables and fennel is no exception, especially when paired with plump raisins.

Fennel has a light taste of liquorice or anise and can be eaten raw or cooked. The beautiful fennel fronds can be used as a garnish or in various recipes.

There are many ways to slice fennel. Slice it lengthwise to create a beautiful side dish to accompany your favorite lunch or dinner recipes. It’s just one of those vegetarian recipes that is so easy, yet adds a special touch of elegance to your table!
