Grilled Fennel on the BBQ (Anise in French)

One of the most underutilized vegetables with its anise undertones, it's one of the few I love. A woman in the grocery today gave me her recipe for it on the barbecue.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, and garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Cut off fennel stalks, quarter fennel bulb lengthwise (she said some remove the core, she doesn't bother). Brush each fennel quarter with marinade.
  3. Prepare grill and preheat to medium. Grill fennel, turning several times with tongs, until slightly charred and crisp-tender. Can also be done on a ridged grill panel.

If you add the mustard you would give a rating of five. Excellent with grill pork with apple sauce and a nice Riesling.

I forgot the mustard. It was to cold to use the outdoor grill so I just did this in a pan. I let the fennel marinade for a few minutes. Very nice. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag

Yum! The only thing I did different is leave the mustard out. Anyone who likes fennel will enjoy this!
