READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by MarraMamba

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.

It was ok. I used the suggested marinade and grilled along side pork tenderloins. next time I will simply rub with olive oil and garlic, salt and pepper before grilling and finish the grilled fennel with a drizzle of balsamic.

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.
