Last week, fennel was one of those super-sale vegetables. I bought some, figuring I'll experiment with it.
Here are some ideas:
Grill it, and eat it plain
Grill it, and eat it tossed with a citrus-based dressing (really delicious!)
Cut into cubes and toss with olive oil and salt, and roast in your oven till nicely browned
Saute in olive oil
Slice thinly, soak in ice water, and use in fresh salads (the ice water makes it really crisp) (seems to go well with citrus)
Use in soups
Use in quiche (saute or roast it first!)
Cook in tomato sauce and serve over rice or similar
Here's a list of a wide variety of recipes that use fennel (note: not all the recipes in this link are kosher)

Personally, I think I'm up to trying a creamy fennel soup! sounds great!
What will you be making with your fennel?
