How to Cook Fennel Vegetables

Microwaved Fennel

For six servings, trim 3 medium-size fennel bulbs. Halve them lengthwise and arrange in one layer in a microwave dish. Add 3 tablespoons of water or chicken stock, cover with plastic microwave wrap, and vent. Microwave on high for 6 to 7 minutes, depending on the size of the fennel. Let stand for 5 minutes before uncovering.

 


Boiled Fennel

Plain boiled or braised fennel is delicious if drained, seasoned with salt and pepper, and served with a drizzle of olive oil or melted butter.
For six servings, trim 3 medium-size fennel bulbs. Halve them lengthwise and arrange them cut side down in a large, heavy skillet. Add enough water or chicken stock to just cover the fennel. Cover and simmer until the vegetable is fork tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Drain and season.

 


Steamed Fennel

Arrange trimmed and halved or quartered fennel bulbs in a steamer basket or colander. Steam, covered, over simmering water until tender when pierced with a sharp fork, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve very hot or marinate in a savory dressing and serve at room temperature.
