Crunchy Fennel Fries

By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

Fennel is a seasonal bulb-like vegetable that’s loaded with fiber, and nutrients like heart-healthy potassium, brain-healthy folate, energizing vitamin B6, and it’s got great digestive properties too. Fennel has a fresh and crunchy texture and makes for a great addition to salads, side dishes and your favorite classic meals, whether it’s raw or cooked. In this recipe, I wanted something cooked and crunchy, so I turned the fennel into fries. No oil is necessary because leaving it out keeps the fennel fries nice and crunchy. Serve them on their own or with your favorite veggie burger, like these lentil and quinoa burgers.
