BAKED FENNEL RECIPE:
A delicious fennel side dish with delicious parmesan flavors.
- 6 medium fennel bulbs (top stalks removed)
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tbsp. garlic powder
- 1 tbsp. onion powder
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- fresh parsley for garnish (don't skip this! It's yummy!)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Remove the top stalks and greens from the fennel bulbs, slice off the very bottoms and cut the bulbs in half lengthwise.
Remove the inner triangular core (it's just like a cabbage you've cut in half).
If the bulbs are very large, cut the rest into smaller, bite-sized pieces.
Place the bulbs in a plastic bag with the rest of the ingredients and shake well to coat the fennel in the oil and spices.
Pour the fennel out into a large baking dish and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the fennel is nice and soft.
Allow to cool slightly and serve.
