Ingredient of the Day- Fennel

Have you ever gone to the grocery store and been intimidated by certain food because you didn’t know what to do with them? Well fennel often times fits that profile. When in reality this sweet light liquorish flavored vegetable has a lot to offer.

The fennel is composed of a white or light green bulb, super imposed stalks, feathery leaves and crunchy seeds, all of which are edible and nutritious. Filled with Vitamin C and B for a better immune system, fiber for lowering cholesterol and risk of colon cancer, and potassium for lowering blood pressure. This little bulb is something than can bring some light into anyone’s day.

Happy Cooking!
