Vegeterian dishes

An easy and tasty first dish. I use fennel because I really like its taste. I feel it’s the taste of spring ! If you don’t have fennel use dill and ground fennel sheeds.


A dish of shrove Sunday

a pinch of black pepper

1 tea cup chopped fennel leaves

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and mold balls the size of a walnut. Fry in hot oil. You can also bake them in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius, smearing a pan with a little oil or putting them on baking paper
