Roasted Fennel

Fennel roasted

I am not a very big fan of fennel, but a friend suggested this recipe and i decided to give it a try, with 12 meals of chag i was running out of ideas! I waited with trepidation as the fennel roasted and then cooled, and when i finally tasted it I was blown away, the dash of citrus really balanced out the sharpness of the anise flavor!

  1. Separate layers of the fennel and cut into chunks.
  2. Lay out in cookie sheet, avoiding too much overlapping.
  3. Drizzle olive oil lemon juice, salt and pepper over the fennel, not too much, just light drizzle.
