I absolutely adore this dish. It’s just so incredibly delicious. But there is one ingredient in here that I just don't like!!! And that’s fennel. The Aniseed smell, yuk, reminds me too much of sambuca. (and that’s another story, not for this website!) BUT, I eat fennel all the time. In soups, stirfrys and this, of course. Why? Because with all the flavour going on, I can’t taste it, it only enhances to this amazing dish. So why do I eat it if I don’t like it? We’ll, like most food I eat but don’t like, it’s because it’s so damn good for us, obviously. Fennel helps repair our overworked livers and is packed full of phytonutrients, not to mention high in fibre, Vitamin C and Potassium. What’s not to love.
What I would suggest, if there is anything you really don’t like eating, like fennel. Chop it up really really small or have a little less than I recommend and then build it up. Your body will love you of it :)
