It's almost winter and that means some delicious winter vegetables like fennel are in season! This underrated vegetable is a family favourite here and even little Mr Teddy Elliott loves it! You can cook it as a tarte tatin, serve it with burrata as a fennel jam, make a quick fennel pickle or fennel and orange salad and don't forget you can also use up the fennel fronds too!
This fennel tarte tatin looks complicated but honestly it isn't. This fennel and feta tarte tatin has slow roasted fennel, garlic and onion and is the laziest (but delicious) tarte tatin you will make!
Winter...salad? Am I crazy? Ok so sometimes you just need a crunchy, fresh salad on days where it is warmer than not or you want to balance a rich meal. Try this beautiful shaved fennel and orange salad!
Quick pickles or fridge pickles are a quick way of using up fresh vegetables that is also perfect for a small amount of vegetables; you only need one bulb's worth of fennel for this pickled fennel. This pickling method doesn't require any boiling and lasts for a month in the fridge!
So tell me Dear Reader, are you a fennel fan? How do you cook fennel?
