Leela (SheSimmers.com) and I thank all of the contributors to our second Beet ‘n Squash YOU! event.
Initially, received a lot of “I hate fennel” responses. Gahh…! Did we choose the wrong vegetable?
But our loyal foodies stepped up. We were blown away by the enthusiasm! 27 in all!
Here are the creative recipes. The winners are announced at the bottom, along with details for the next battle.

Tart of Fennel, Leek and Broccoli with Cheddar Crust by Bite Me Kitchen
Apart from this colourful tart ‘s obvious visual appeal, Rose builds seriously complex layers of flavours and textures.
Firstly, the addition of cheddar and cornmeal to the crust creates a dense, savory sensation. She combines a selection of cheeses and a variety of vegetables to make a vegetarian filling. Her recipe follows our philosophy that vegetables should never be an afterthought next to meat.
Well-deserving winner, wouldn’t you say?
