This is based on the recipe by Bob Blumer from the "Surreal Gourmet Bites" cookbook. This simple caramelization method transforms this much maligned veggie into a knock-your-socks-off side dish or sweet snack that you won't be able to get enough of!
This simple and flavorful recipe was featured on "Everyday Italian" by Giada De Laurentiis. Goes well with other roasted dishes for dinner such as pork and balsamic pears. The saltiness of the Parmesan goes wonderfully with the sweet, mellow flavor of the roasted fennel.
I find it totally amazing, that children and men ALL LOVE THIS RECIPE! As for the Female of our species we just love this for the flavor and the health benefits it brings our families.
Roasted brings out a wonderful sweetness in this dish. The Garlic is roasted to a tan color is creamy good. You can just pop them in your mouth. Or you can spread them on your florets or fresh bread. Just be sure to scoop up some of the rosemary, olive oil and black pepper that may have escaped to the bottom of the dish.

The suprise hits of this year's Thankgiving dinner were the vegetable side dishes. This was the green vegetable I served. I used red Swiss chard, giving the dish a holiday look. The dish can be finished in the oven while the turkey is resting.
This recipe was originally one of Martha Stewart's but I've adjusted it to make it more to my taste. This has become my DH's favorite vegetable recipe. In fact, we love it so much that the two of us usually pig out on the whole recipe.
Once upon a time, my husband told me that he didn't like cooked cabbage. "Ah ha," I thought, "a challenge!" So I made a dish based on my "Simmered Leeks" recipe that works so well, and -- let's just put it this way: he changed his mind. He loves it when I make simmered cabbage! A very simple and tasty way to use this much-maligned veggie.
This is what everyone always requests from my grandma for all get-together, it is so good! She finally gave me the recipe after I have been begging her for it for years--it's supposed to be a family secret. I can't believe I'm sharing it w/all of you...shhh. But it is that good, I thought you guys should try it out!
If you like crunchy potatoes, with no sauce, you'll love this casserole made in a shallow dish! We love it plain and simple, and fight over the crunchy parts, but feel free to add seasonings of your choice. If calories are no object, top the casserole with shredded cheese (or sour cream) and sprinkle with real cooked bacon pieces.
