Fabulous Fennel


If you haven't made this herb a staple in your garden and pantry yet, then you need to try it!

This licorice-y tasting herb contains vitamin C, potassium, manganese, iron, folate, and fiber. It is also rich in phytonutrients and has a high concentration of volatile oils. In my sub-tropical climate on the Sunshine Coast I am lucky enough to have it growing in my garden all year around. I have been stocking up on fennel and parsnip soup - which tastes amazing #fennellove !!!


This is a variation of Sarah Wilson's I Quit Sugar Fennel soup.
