Roasted Fennel Deliciousness.

December 12, 2015

This vegetable side dish is SO good!  It takes the strong licorice flavor to a minimum but the fennel is enhanced with garlic, lemon zest and parmesan.  Very simple to make.  Bon Apetit!

 

Serves 4-6

  • 4 fresh bulbs of fennel

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon  salt

  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1⁄3 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Clean and cut the fennel bulbs: cut them horizontally into 1/3 inch thick slices and reserve the fronds.

  3. Take the reserved fennel fronds and chop enough of them to make 2 teaspoons; set aside.

  4. Spray the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch glass baking dish with olive oil.

  5. Lay the fennel slices in the dish, making sure that all the pieces are touching the bottom so that they roast rather than steam when they're cooking.

  6. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper, then with the Parmesan.

  7. Drizzle with the olive oil and bake for 45 minutes at 375 degrees F, until the fennel is tender and the Parmesan is golden brown.

  8. Transfer roasted fennel to serving platter, sprinkle with the 2 teaspoons chopped reserved fennel fronds, and serve.
