Are you at the millionth attempt in the fight against vegetables with your children?
(whether young or old, huh!)
I think today’s recipe will help you to make your family discover the flavor of fennel in small steps: because we know that it takes gradualness in all fields, in the kitchen above all!
The savory pie with fennel and cooked ham is really an excellent compromise between taste and health. It’s a super complete meal, that I like to make often, especially when autumn arrives and fennel begins to crowd the fruit and vegetable stalls in large quantities.
How could I resist then?
Let’s get to work and prepare something healthy and delicious!
