fennel & beet blend

Did you know fennel root is heart shaped?

I juiced this licorice flavored vegetable with our juice this morning – continuing with the unique flavors we are enjoying lately.

I juiced the four stalks and part of the bulb, giving the juice a fresh spicy flavor. It produces a fair amount of liquid, similar to celery, and makes the kitchen smell great. While there are several health benefits of fennel, in powder and essential oil form, I wanted to see if the licorice flavor would be prevalent.

It was, and we liked it!

      haa – yeah, maybe replace the beet with an apple for him!? πŸ˜€ I really like the veggie flavors, so to me this was good… but I totally get that others may not!

    HEARTS! You know I love this. Those things aren’t a coincidence – they are a reminder to celebrate LOVE. Like the love leaves I found on my walk a few weeks ago. Nature is amazing. :)

      licorice isn’t one of my favorites, but the fennel flavor is light and fresh – I want to try cooking with it more!

      I probably wouldn’t have noticed either, but I chopped off the “end” piece to throw out… and oh, look, a heart! πŸ˜€

    I never ever thought that I would like the taste of fennel until I had it in a salad at a restaurant this past weekend. It was a variation of “beets and heat” with golden beats, goat cheese and fennel drizzled with a honey tabasco! Very different, but VERY delicious!

    You REALLY make me want to go buy a juicer! Ughhhhh!

    in answer to your question: no. I try though, does that count? Love the hearts – didn’t know that about fennel. Your juice looks awesome. Like the color of ruby grapefruit.
