Braised Fennel with Saffron and Tomato




I'll never forget the time I met Deborah Madison. She was on her book tour for Vegetable Literacy in Seattle and I got to hear her speak and get my book signed. Her books hold special places in my heart and are well-loved. It's amazing how many ways she can create beautiful new vegetable recipes that still manage to inspire after all her years of recipe development. Truly, an inspiration. This dish is such a special one.  Lovingly braising the fennel brings out so much flavor and aroma. It is my absolute favorite way to prepare fennel.  Top it with a poached egg or two to make it a beautiful meal.

Braised Fennel with Saffron and Tomato (from Vegetable Literacy by Deborah Madison)

2 large fennel bulbs (I used 3 smaller ones)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp fennel seeds
good pinch of  saffron threads
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 clove garlic, crushed (I actually used 5 cloves of chopped garlic in this...I'm a garlic lover)
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 cup water
sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon butter
1 handful fennel greens or flat-leaf parsley



1. Trim off the stalks and greens from the fennel bulbs. (Mince the greens for a garnish. If there are none, you can use parsley.) If the outer thick leaves of the bulbs look tough and scarred, as they often do, take a slice off the base to loosen them and set them aside for another use (like fennel stock, which I'll be posting about next!)

2. Halve each bulb lengthwise and cut the halves into wedges about 1 1/2 inches at the widest part.

3. Heat the olive oil in a wide sauté pan (I used my gorgeous new Dutch oven that I got for my birthday) over medium-high heat. When hot, add the onion and fennel seeds, crumble in the saffron and thyme and then cook until the steam releases the color from the saffron, after several minutes.

4. Add the fennel wedges and cook them until golden, turning them and the onions occasionally. Once they are well colored, add the garlic, stir in the tomato paste and then add the stock and 1 teaspoon salt.

5. Scrape the pan to release the juices, then cover and simmer until the fennel is tender, another 15 minutes. Before serving, stir in the butter and taste to see if it needs more salt and pepper.

  13. Binary options fraud is being committed by companies that encourage investors to make apparently simple bet on whether shares, currencies or other financial instruments will rise or fall in value.
    Thousands of pensioner are at risk of losing their life savings in a rapidly growing financial scam that British authorities are powerless to clamp down on Savers are investing their money in fraudulent online trading site offering the promise of potentially huge payouts with little risk attached.
    Pensioner Eddie Dave, a former self-employed IT worker, said he invested a total of nearly £70, 000 in a binary trading platform called GlobalTrader365 . Mr Danny said he was initially approached online by the firm in February 2017. He said that he felt his pension income might be improved by accepting the investment opportunity he said they were offering him.
    Like Ms Ablett, Mr Danny said he was assigned someone who identified themselves as a “broker” to trade on his behalf and made a series of investments over the course of several month.In December, he said he filed a request with the platform to withdraw his money, the majority of which had stemmed from his pension fund. He claims that request was denied and – like Ms Ablett – he said his account later appeared to have been blocked.Because Mr Danny had paid for some of the investments with credit cards, he said he raised a chargeback dispute with his banks, but they have so far been unable to help him.It’s disgusting and I feel so foolish to have fallen for it, ” says Ms Ablett. “For now, all I can say is that if my story prevents at least one person from falling for this, it was definitely worth telling….
    Meanwhile In the absence of serious action against binary options fraud by UK authorities, Ethical Revolution Hacker has helped a couple dozen alleged victims of the industry reclaim a total of more than $10 million. The company has grown rapidly since it was founded in early 2014, in some cases by helping victims of its own employees.if you have been scammed by this fake broker i will advise you to contact for help cos its never too late recover your lost fund here is their contact web address ethicalrevolutionhacker. strikingly. com
