Amazing! I also like fennel raw, but it is nice how roasting kind of mellows it out. A great veggie side dish for any meal.

When I first tried this recipe, I failed to give it any stars. Forgive me Linds, this is a very tasty recipe and worthy of 5 stars! Thanks for sharing!

Yumm!! I love the subtle anise flavor coming through the flavor of an oven-roasted vegetable. I added kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper along with extra virgin olive oil and it tasted great!!!
