  • fennel 2 bulbs, very thinly sliced
  • extra-virgin olive oil 2 tbsp
  • pomegranate molasses 1 tbsp
  • lemon ½, juiced
  • sumac 1 tbsp
  • mint a handful of leaves


  • Step 1

    Put the thinly sliced fennel into a bowl full of iced water to soak for 10 minutes, then drain really well – this makes it super crunchy and crisp. Tip onto a platter or serving plate.

  • Step 2

    Whisk together the oil, pomegranate molasses, lemon juice, ½ the sumac and some seasoning. Pour all over the fennel and then sprinkle over the remaining sumac and scatter with mint leaves.
