It's far too easy in these unpredicted times to order takeways and live with convenience food.
Here I show you how to make a family favourite with minimal work.
The beauty of this dish, is that it can be prepped a day or so before.
With the beauty and nourishing properties of Fennel being the main focus.
Did you know that Fennel is rich in vitamin c, folate and potassium. The perfect immune boosting dish in the cold winter months with the added combination of Potassium, magnesium, dietary fibre, starchy carbohydrates, manganese and folate from the humble potato.
