  2. I’m still sitting on the fence with regards to fennel, but I think this would go down well – nice and crunchy, plus it’s a feast for the eyes :D

    Roasting vegetables brings out all their lovely flavors. I just love fennel and don’t understand why more people don’t eat it.

    This is great, I love using fennel in my dishes!

  6. I love fennel too. I think that the aversion to it has to do with its kind of licorice-y, anise-y taste maybe . . .

    But these colors are beautiful. And who doesn’t want to eat beautifully colored food?

    • Yes but Daisy you do taste a mild anise-y flavor when it’s raw but when its roasted, the flavor changes, sort of like garlic. I love looking at and eating beautifully colored food!
