These seriously delicious fennel chips are a quick, healthy alternative to a pack of potato chips. I experimented with fennel as I like how versatile and tasty it is and I wanted to see if I could make chips. The result was fantastic.

They are easy to prepare and result in limited waste as you use the bulb and stalks. I save the feathery fronds, finely cut and sprinkle on salads.

They can be served as a snack, at parties or as a tasty side at dinner.

In addition to being tasty, fennel has a number of health benefits, including:
high fibre which is great for lowering cholesterol and a healthy heart.
good for anaemia due to the iron content.
calmative properties help with indigestion, flatulence and indigestion.
can help with digestion, constipation and abdominal discomfort.
Vitamin C for immune function, skin repair and as an antioxidant against free radicals.
helps with period pain and menopause.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 18 minutes
Serves: 1 medium sized bowl

Ingredients
1 fennel bulb with stalks
1 - 2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to season
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Method
Line two wire racks or baking trays with baking paper.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Cut the stalks into 5 cm lengths. Cut into quarters longways.
Cut the bulb into quarters and then into thin 1/2 cm slices. Aim for consistency, so the slices are the same thickness.
