How many net carbs are in fennel?
One cup of sliced fennel (about 87g) contains just over 3g net carbs, which definitely makes it a low carb vegetable!
To prepare fennel bulbs, the stalks and fronds are removed – although I frequently use some of the fronds for a very pretty garnish. The bulbs can then be sliced, chopped, or left whole, depending on the recipe.

But as you'll see below, it is very versatile and pairs well with creamy flavors as well as bright fresh ones. Let me know in the comments if you have any other suggestions!
