Pair these braised bulbs with either seafood or rice. It goes nicely with both.

We were very excited to receive Deborah Madison’s new cookbook, Vegetable Literacy, because a Deborah Madison cookbook means good vegetarian food is about to hit the table. Like, really good. Don’t miss the meat good. First up, a hearty braised fennel dish that doesn’t have to hang out on the sidelines.

Fennel is a natural with seafood, so you might pair this dish with halibut or seared scallops. But it’s also good with rice, and black rice makes for an especially dramatic — and delicious — pairing. Be sure to leave the core in the fennel bulb. It’s what holds the wedges together.
