Side dish recipes that make a perfect accompaniment to any main! - Giada De Laurentiis

Giada De Laurentiis
Fennel is one of those vegetables that is underappreciated in this country. In Italy, on the other hand, its versatility makes it one of the most used vegetables. Raw, it has a licorice flavor and a celery-like texture that is very refreshing, but it’s also delicious cooked, as it is in this dish. The licorice flavor mellows a bit and is a great match for the salty Parmesan.

It’s delicious and tastes extra decadent, all while keeping cauliflower as the star. If you were looking for a way to convince your kids to eat this veggie, this is it!
