Here is one more proposition for dinner. Long time back we have changed our diet and taste habits in the family. From heavy and fatty meals we come to light and fresh one. Even when we are in the restaurants, for dinner we eat SALADS. Joking I used to say to our sons, that “Mommy likes grass”. So now our youngest one every time he sees some greens on the plate or in the kitchen, he tries to feed me (even by strawberries’ stems 😂).
Today we’ve had yummy salad from fresh fennel, pears and different nuts.
FENNEL is a flowering plant-species in the carrot family. It has a pale bulb and long green stalks. All parts of the fennel plant, including the bulb, stalk, leaves, and seeds, are edible.
Fennel has a crunchy texture and mildly sweet flavor, making it a pleasant addition to any dish, whether eaten raw or cooked.
Fennel will stay fresh in the refrigerator for about 4 days. So better to eat fennel right after purchase, as it loses flavor over time.
Interesting to know:
Fennel provides high levels of vitamins, minerals, dietary nitrates and is a natural source of estrogen.
