Fennel

If you love the taste of liquorice, this veggie is probably one that you’d love too, because of its mild aniseed flavour. All parts of this autumn/winter vegetable are edible, right from the root bulb all the way to the seeds, and it can be used in salads, slaws, pastas, purees and even as an essential oil.
