Fennel and Fig with Jerusalem Artichoke Angel Hair

Some of my guests have requested paleo meals. I spotted a recipe in the  Idiot’s Guide: Paleo Slow Cooking by Molly Pearl (see link below) that sounded interesting and gave it a whirl… I didn’t have bay leaves or shallots, so I used fresh chives, and also added some dried lemon flakes just because I had them and thought it would be interesting. I added the cinnamon a bit late… my tastebuds aren’t very strong, so I’d go more heavy-handed… might also add some cardamom.  If you really hate the taste of anise or licorice, you probably won’t like to cook with fennel… but I thought the combination was subtle and delicious over Jerusalem artichoke angel hair.
