Roasted Curried Fennel

The recipe I’ve got for you today is one of my favorites because it has just the right hint of spice and its also one of my favorite vegetables!Fennel is such a unique vegetable with its sweet licorice taste.I love the crunch and the sweet fruity aroma it exudes as soon as you cut into it.I usually save the stalks and leaves to be used in my soups!Apart from being so delicious its also a great source of Vitamin C and contains anti-inflammatory properties.

    Hi! I have a (maybe stupid) question about the ingredients. Is it a teaspoon of paprika OR chiliflakes OR cayenne? Or is it a teaspoon of paprika AND chiliflakes AND cayenne? Or is it a mix of the three with 1 teaspoon as a combined weight?
