Fennel is one of those great root vegetables that when  cooked in a certain way they change there flavor completely. It can be added to so many dishes and every time it's a surprise.
One of the favorite  dishes in my house is this one. I guess because it has a sweet flavor to it, even the kids go crazy over it.
Some of the healthy benefits of fennel are:
It is reach in iron ,anti acid and extremely helpful for indigestion.
Mothers uses the fennel powder to sooth baby's stomach aches due to inflammation,and some people also chew fennel seeds after food  to facilitate digestion and for bad breath.
The other advantage is that once you add a sweet vegetable to your meal you have less chances for craving processed sugar,
