Fennel is an aromatic plant related to the carrot with a taste similar to anise. In Provence it is referred to as “The King of Vegetables” and I happen to agree-it is DELICIOUS!
2 Large Fennel Bulbs
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Preheat Oven to 400 F / 200 C
Line a baking tray with parchment paper
Slice the fennel bulb into thick rings
Evenly distribute the sliced fennel across the baking tray.
Drizzle Olive Oil and Balsamic and using your hands, toss them in the mix
Optional: Top with Salt, Pepper and Thyme
Bake for 40 minutes, turning the fennel halfway through roasting
