Fennel will help warm up the body while the addition of lemon will support healthy Liver function. Together these two foods help the digestive system.

Yields1 Serving
 2 Fennel bulbs with fronds
 ½ cup Chicken broth
 1 Meyer lemon (you can substitute with lemon) juiced and zested
 ½ tsp Salt
1

Trim the fennel and roughly chop 1 tablespoon of the fronds. Halve each bulb through the core, then cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

2

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add just enough oil to coat the pan. When hot, cook the fennel, without moving, until browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook 1 minute more. Add salt.

3

Add the broth, lemon rind, and juice and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, until tender, about 10 minutes.

4

Using a slotted spoon, transfer fennel to a bowl.

5

Raise the heat to high and reduce the sauce until syrupy, 3 to 5 minutes.

6

Fold the sauce and reserved fronds into the fennel and top.

7

Serve over rice and enjoy!

  1. Could you add a description of how this meal helps the body?

    • Hi Paula,
      Fennel is warming which is the goal of this program right now, to warm up the body. The lemon is sour so it supports the Liver.
