Apple Cabbage Fennel Compote Recipe

adapted from Levana Cooks, using Garden Vegetable Levana Nourishments


Fennel is somewhat neglected in this country.

Quel dommage! This Cabage-Fennel-Apple trinity a real winner, besides being a real nutritional powerhouse. The sage brings all the flavors together. This will do excellently, alone or as a side dish with poultry or sliced steak. Try it as part of a vegetarian main course over kasha or in a kale salad

The food processor will do all your slicing and shredding in a wink of an eye!

The braising reduces the dish to a small, powerful delicious heap.

PS: Dear pregnant moms, did you know fennel does wonders for nausea? I kid you not. It was always my best friend throughout my (very tough) pregnancies. You’re welcome!


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 Granny Smith (green) apples, unpeeled and shredded
