Nutrition Q & A

How Do I Prepare the Fennel that I Bought at the Farmers Market?

Fennel has a broad, off-white base and light green, celery-like stems with bright green foliage. The base and stems can be eaten raw in salads, providing a crunchy contrast to other ingredients. Fennel can also be cooked like other vegetables by grilling, boiling or sautéing and in soups. Add the fragrant foliage as a garnish to cooked fennel or other dishes.

Fennel is low in calories with only 13 calories per ½-cup serving and contains vitamin C, potassium, folate and fiber.
