Fennel yumminess

Ok...this is the chopped version before it started cooking.  I add all kinds of stuff. Make up your own with the veggies you like!!! and here is the after:

1 large Fennel (chop stalks and all! even the fern fronds at top...good too)
chop mushrooms (or I buy a small package already chopped)
Green Beans can be added! I love this w/ Green Beans!
1 large onion -chopped
Garlic cloves minced. (I add a lot b/c I love garlic)
2  Oranges - Zest over all items - or use orange juice if you don't have any oranges or tangelos available (set oranges aside for vinaigrette)
Saute all items in olive oil

in small bowl squeeze oranges (or use orange juice)
Hot sauce (I add quite a bit as I like it spicy these days. hee hee)
1 tbsp sugar (or 1 packet of sweetener)
olive oil.
After items are cooked, pour vinaigrette over and let set....YUMMY.

This is a great dish for pork chops (zest the orange over them too!), or chicken breasts.  You can add some heat to either of them w/ Hot Pepper Flake.

Enjoy peeps! I know we sure did! Mr. Eye Candy could not believe how good this was!!! He grew up a straight meat and potatoes kind of guy...and now...well let's just say his tastes are changing!
