Fennel Chips

Fennel Chips

Posted 2017-09-01 by Naomi follow
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.

    Serves: 1 medium sized bowl

  • 1 fennel bulb with stalks

  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

  • Method
  • Line two wire racks or baking trays with baking paper.

  • Place the fennel in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper (if desired). Toss to combine until evenly coated.
  • Spread the fennel stalks on the baking paper so there is no overlap. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Add more seasoning to the fennel bulb if required.
