recipe :: roasted fennel

| seasonal recipes | simple living

when i'm at the market, i try to pick at least one thing that i have no idea what to do with.  my last adventure? fennel.  fennel has always been a bit of a mystery to me, but i'm happy to report that not only is it easy to fix, it's absolutely delicious too!

by roasting the bulbs, you bring out all the yummy flavors of the earthy, licorice fennel.  if you slice it thin enough, it even gets a little crunchy.  yum yum yum!  do you have any tricks to fixing fennel?

  • This looks delicious. I use fennel a lot but never tried roasting it. Thanks for the idea! A fennel/orange salad is also very good — refreshing and healthy.

  • we are going to have to do this! yum!!!

  • YUM! I love bringing home fresh veggies from the store. I like your idea of trying out something new when you go to the market. Gets away from the same old thing!

  • Oh yum. Maybe I’ll actually venture out and try to make this!

  • Fennel is also a fun one to grow in the garden! I grew enough last year to have a constant supply. Try sauteing with onions, garlic, and cabbage (chinese or head) in olive oil with a sprinkling of oregano, thyme, and lemon juice. It makes a delicious slaw to pair with fish!!
