Fennel with Grainy Mustard

Fennel with Grainy Mustard

This lightly pickled whole dish is so crunchy and refreshing.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Fennel (2 medium stalks)
500 g
Olive oil (for stir-frying)
3 tablespoons
For the dressing:
Olive oil
2 tablespoons
Whole grain mustard
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1.5 tablespoons


1. We will be using just the stalks of the fennel in this recipe. Peel off any skin that has bad spots and wash the stalk.
2. Cut the stalks in half vertically and then cut them into 1 cm pieces.
3. Combine the dressing ingredients in a large bowl and mix together.
4. Heat the 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan and cook the fennel for about 5 minutes.
5. It's finished cooking when the fennel is well coated in the oil.
6. Toss the fennel in a bowl with the dressing from Step 3.
7. Transfer to a storage container and place in the refrigerator for half a day to allow the flavor to blend into the fennel and make it taste even more delicious.

Story Behind this Recipe

Since fennel stalks look so delicious, I'm testing out easy ways to enjoy it. Since the leftovers of this tasted so good the following day, I made it again.
