Recipes for fresh fennel *leaves* (not the bulbs)?

tadasana | Jul 9, 2008 11:08 AM

I have three lovely fennel plants in my garden (two bronze, one smokey) and the lacy leaves have a delicate, fresh anise flavor. (I call them "leaves" because I'm not sure what else to call them--they aren't flowers; they're more like very lacy stalks.)

I've found wonderful recipes for fennel bulbs but of course I don't want to dig up one of my plants to cook them!

Does anyone have some suggestions or recipes that would use the leaves instead of the bulbs?
