Fennel is much liked by Italians because it tastes similar to anise but is sweeter and milder, and also easy to prepare.

Ingredients

1 fennels 360 g
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 6 g
salt [optional]

Method

  1. Remove the stalks and the feathery leaves. Slice the bulb into quarters lengthwise.
  2. Fill a pot with water and add the quarters along with a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil. Cook 4-5 min, until the fennel is soft but still al dente. Drain the quarters thoroughly.
  3. Melt the butter in a pan over high heat taking care not to let it burn. Add the fennel and cook, turning often, to brown each side nicely, about 5 min total. Cover with grated Parmesan, then serve.

Easy enough to make. I don't believe I like fennel, however...

I don't like raw fennel at all and so I was very apprehensive to try this dish. It was DELICIOUS! The harsh raw flavor gets so mellowed through cooking and it has an excellent texture. I'm glad to see I'll be able to add this to my diet...:)
