Fennel is a flowering plant species in the carrot family. It is a hardy, perennial herb with yellow flowers and feathery leaves. It is indigenous to the shores of the Mediterranean but has become widely naturalized in many parts of the world, especially on dry soils near the sea-coast and on riverbanks.
Mix chopped fennel fronds into pestos, salsas, stocks, curries, and vinaigrettes to bring freshness to the dish. Top yogurt dips, eggs, stir-fries, toasts. Delicious tossed into green salads or strewn on top of roasted vegetables
