A simple and delicious Eat Local Challenge recipe.
|2||fennel bulbs (tops removed)|
|1 pn||black pepper (to taste)|
Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F. Take the fennel bulbs and slice them in half from top to bottom, so you get two mostly flat halves. Place these halves in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet and drizzle with the oil. Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the bulbs. Place in the oven and roast or 15-20 minutes. If the bulb starts to dry out or become touch, pull them out of the oven and wrap in aluminum foil. This will essentially act as a steamer, resulting in a softer, delicious fennel bulb!
