Easy & great! I added a bit of dried dill. I never have roasted fennel before & now I have a new favorite!
Saw this recipe in the Fennel thread (7-09) and I had some fennel I wanted to use. I'm not a big fan of the licorice flavor. I tried this without the carrots and it was pretty good! So I'll have a recipe to use when I get fennel in my CSA box.
This is a great side dish. I love fennel. Even people who don't like it raw might like it roasted, it gets so mellow. I skipped the butter in this, and only used a light sprinkle of salt. Thanks, Parsley!
