How to Make Roasted Fennel

Roasting fennel brings out its inherent sweetness, and gives it nice browned edges. Serve with roasted meats, roast chicken, stews, or other roasted vegetables.

You'll see that this recipe is quite flexible - make 1 bulb of fennel or 10, it depends on how big your oven is and how many people you have to feed!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes



Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut the fennel into spears or bite-size chunks. Put the fennel in a roasting or baking pan. Drizzle it with olive oil and toss to coat the fennel. Sprinkle with salt, cover with foil or a lid, and bake/roast for 20 minutes. Uncover and continue roasting until fennel is tender and browned, about 20 more minutes (this may take longer, it depends on how fresh the fennel is).

Serve roasted fennel warm or at room temperature.
