Fennel or wild fennel is an herbaceous plant that can grow spontaneously on the coasts of the Mediterranean.
It is a very versatile food. It's used raw to enrich mixed salads, but you can also cook it to enrich the most varied culinary preparations.
Fennel has a good amount of water, but it also contains vitamins, minerals, and numerous molecules with nutraceutical value, such as phenolic compounds and flavonoids.
