This recipe comes from; "From Saint Hildegard's Kitchen..foods of health..foods of joy" by Jany Fournier-Rosset. I have not tried this recipe yet but it looks interesting. The recipe is dated from the years 1098-1179. It is also noted that her recipes should not be prepared in copper, aluminum or pewter vessels because of the toxic salts those cooking utensils release. Measurements were not given for flour,oil or wine,so it may need to be adjusted. I am guessing on those. It also calls for 1tsp of "galingale", which i believe is also known as china root but could not find it on "zaar" list of ingredients...it can be found in thai or oriental stores.
If you are not familiar with fennel it has a refreshing licorice taste and this combined with onions & mushrooms is really tasty -Nice to have a some new options for veggies on your dinner menu especially one like this bold, colorful, crunchy dish
This recipe is oh so yummy! My husband is a potato lover and I fennel, so one night I had both on hand and threw them together. 25 minutes or so into cooking I felt that the dish lacked something, so I threw in some gorgonzola and wow did it add a great flavor! Gorgonzola can be omitted but make sure you add a bit more salt. This dish will be a great accompaniment to sausage. Perhaps throw the sausage right in with the potatoes!
Fennel also known as Anise because of it 's taste. Like celery, it is filling and yet very low in calories, so that it provides an excellent snack food for those watching their weight. Baking brings out a nice sweetness.
My brother made this from a recipe my SIL got on-line. It's originally from Bon Appetit. I loved the way the fennel and squash tasted, asked her for the recipe, and here it is! Good fall recipe, for Thanksgiving or Christmas (which is what my brother made it for). We never celebrate Christmas on Christmas which is why I'm able to post it early.
This sounds delightful and will be on the top of my list to make ASP. The mild licorice flavor would go well with a roasting chicken. Either stuff the bird with it or serve it as a side dish A short cut is to use 2 packages of stuffing mix, follow the package instructions then omit the bread & herbs from this recipe.
A nice smooth tasting soup that can also be made without the galic, but personaly I think the garlic adds a nice taste to it.
I found it in a soup recipe book that I got when my DH couldn't eat any solids
