When I’m about to go on a trip and I don’t want to come back to rotten vegetables in my fridge I take inventory……. (You have seen me do this before!). I’m a vegetable rescuer!!!
I’m a huge fan of Fennel, I almost always have some in my fridge. So what to do with these veges.
I was thinking soup. I have never heard of fennel soup but I googled and found several recipes for “Fennel Soup”.
Not that I followed that recipe!, because I wanted t use what I had in the fridge.I started with these lovely red onions and sliced and sauteed them. Then added some garlic. Next I tackled the peppers.yumsauI diced and sauteed in olive oil.
Then the star…. The FennelThe fronds, the stalks and the bulb cleaned and chopped.
I added salt and pepper (coarse ground) and olive oil and sauteed.
then added the herbs I had in FridgeRosemary, Parsley and ThtmeAnd Fennel FrondsI added Fennel seeds and Star Anise ( another favorite)!!!LOOKING YUMMY!!!Just so happened that I had homemade chicken stock in the freezer.
(you can use store bought no problem)Coming together!Now I add small pasta. Simmer until pasta al dente.Serve and store leftovers.Bring to work for staff. They will love you!!
