Chilled Fennel Soup With Orange Zest
For some reason, fennel is one of those mysterious vegetables that I've always been intimidated by. Judging from its seeds, I knew that it tasted a bit like anise and since I loath black licorice, the idea of a green oniony looking vegetable that might taste like licorice, has never been exactly tempting. But then my friend grilled some recently for the top of a pizza and I discovered that it's actually the tastiest green oniony vegetable ever!
This is another recipe from The Catalan Country Kitchen (out-of-print but great book!)
