About this recipe

Fennel’s sturdy, fibrous texture makes it ideal for a low, slow braise in wine. The result is tender and savory, and sports an added layer of flavor from the vermouth and star anise.

The Benefits

Fennel bulbs and fronds are full of vitamins (several Bs and C), an excellent source of fiber, and contain calcium, iron, manganese and magnesium). They are considered a heart-healthy food with several other antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and even anti-cancer benefits.
