January 8, 2017

With all the variety of foods & seasonings, there is no reason we should ever be bored with what we eat! Sometimes we simply need to change our state of mind. Try changing your focus from the main ingredient to the spices, and see where it takes you. Let’s start with fennel.

Fennel is a flowering plant in the carrot family. It is very aromatic and flavorful, and tastes similar to anise and licorice.

Baby fennel is the sixth most common ingredient used in the cooking competition chopped, where chefs are presented with the same basket of ingredients and compete to create the best meal.

Common in many Indian and Middle Eastern dishes, people in the U.S. are more apt to recognize it as a primary seasoning in Italian sausage.

Along with cumin and corriander, fennel comprises a weight loss trio of herbs recommended by Dr. Oz. Boil the mixture in water for 5 minutes, strain and sip throughout the day. Read about proper ratio of water to herbs here.

Fennel seed creations include Focaccia bread , Arugala salad and grilled spare ribs.
