An exquisite Mediterranean vegetable that will adorn any lunch, dinner, or holiday table. If you are tired of potatoes, pasta and porridge, fennel is the best way to diversify the menu.
It is sold in supermarkets and looks like this. Very similar to the hands.
Before you start baking, you will need a little preparation.
Wash and dry. Cut off the base. After this procedure, we will fall off two large leaves that cover the edible core. Cut off the stems. We still have this onion.
We will work with it. All that's left to do is cut it into four parts and remove the hard stump.
Drizzle with olive oil. A little bit of salt. Some freshly ground black pepper. And mix.
Add the cherry tomatoes cut in half. If desired, you can add several bulbs. I had shallots, but our onions and leeks will do.
Preparation is done. You can put it on a baking sheet, or in a baking dish.
The picture already causes an appetite. Put it in the oven for 20 minutes, or until our dish looks like this.
Agree, nature has taken care to surround us with beautiful things. What a color! What a texture!
This dish is perfect for the first acquaintance with fennel. Let's not hide this wonderful taste behind sauces.
The best sauce here is a little lemon juice.
Baked fennel is not only a great side dish, but also a delicious independent dish. It can be prepared for a festive table. It is very tasty and very effective!
