I thought so.

This is a really simple recipe for vegetables roasted with delicious Fennel vegetable bulb.

If you’re not familiar with the pungent flavor and aroma of Fennel, you’re really missing out. Some people describe it as having a licorice flavor.

It took me a while to acquire a taste for Fennel and Anise, but the tipping point definitely happened while we were in Greece.

In both Turkey and Greece we had anise-flavored liquors called Raki (in Turkey) and Ouzo (in Greece).

We ordered Ouzo blindly off a menu in Athens and did NOT expect a black-licorice flavor.

I wish I had a picture of the look on our faces when we both took our first sip.
