Fennel can be quite a daunting veggie to use in cooking, but this gratin has the most wonderful fragrant, delicate flavour and is wonderful with meat or fish as a side dish.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 200c/400f/gas mark 6.
  • Cut fennel in half lenghways and slice each half thinly. Peel and slice the red onion thinly.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan and cook the onion until softened. Add 2 of the minced garlic cloves and mix.
  • Add the sliced fennel and cook, stirring regularly, until soft and lightly golden.
  • Score a cross in the top of each tomato and plunge into boiling water for a minute. Drain and peel the skin off, then chop them roughly and add to the fennel. Cook, stirring regularly, until tomato is softened.
  • Season the mixture well and spread in a greased gratin dish.
  • Mix together the breadcrumbs, final minced garlic clove, parmesan and lemon zest. Spread over the fennel mixture. If you want the gratin to be extra-cheesy, at this point sprinkel the grated gruyere over the top of the breadcrumbs.
  • Bake until golden brown and crisp.
