Would you believe fennel is part of the carrot family? With it's aromatic aniseed type flavour it goes great with fish but also works well in a soup. With the onion flavour of leek it is a delicious gluten free and vegan winter warmer filled with so many nutritional benefits, serve with a slab of bread for a hearty lunch.
