What is a good vegetable substitute for fennel?

I've just browsed through my new issue of Bon Apetit and a couple of recipes using fennel really caught my attention because of other ingredients. What vegetable would be a good substitute for fennel? My family are not fennel fans...

It depends on the recipe, but if you're looking for a similar texture and crunch, celery could be a good alternative.

My family says they do not like fennel. When I roast it first they enjoy the recipe. Don't know what your recipe is calling for and I agree with Merrile re. celery having similar texture and crunch if you are serving fennel raw.

If your family doesn't like fennel, why not find another recipe. No other veggie will duplicate the anisy flavor.
