Wonderful! This had a nice mixture of flavors and was very satisfying. We had it for dinner with sourdough toast and everyone loved it. This was actually our first time trying fennel and it had a mild, licorice flavor and aroma that we really liked. This is a recipe I will definitely make again! Made for ZaarTag.
