DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
  • Trim the green tops of the fennel bulbs and cut the bulbs in half.
  • Use a little of the oil to grease a baking dish. Arrange the bulbs in the dish, with the flat sides uppermost.
  • Use a pastry brush (or clean fingers!) to "baste" the fennel with the remaining oil. This will stop it from burning during roasting.
  • Mix the seeds together and grind well.
  • Crumble the cheese and mix with the seeds. It will form a kind of paste.
  • Smooth ¼ of the paste on top of each fennel half.
  • Roast for 30 minutes, until the fennel has softened and the topping is starting to go brown.
