Carrot and Fennel Hash Recipe

I've never had fennel before. It's something I feed my rabbits and they love from bulb to frond. They can't get enough! It smells good. Kind of like anise or licorice, but milder. I thought I would give it a try and acquired a small bulb.

I found this pic on the web.
Then, I searched for a recipe. I found this one: Carrot and Fennel
I didn't have all of the ingredients, so modified it a bit:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
3 carrots, shredded
1 fennel, diced
1/4 teaspoon fennel seed
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup milk

Sauté carrots and fennel in olive oil/butter mixture on medium-high, until slightly tender and browned.
Lower temperature and add spices, continue stirring until mixed with vegetables. Add butter/milk mixture and cook until absorbed.
Fennel will have a slight 'crunch'. The carrots lend a sweetness.

This made enough for 2.
Served with a small T-bone steak and milk.

And, an FYI, fennel is used to make absinthe ... which I have no intention of trying. ;)
