The most delicious simple roasted fennel dish. You will love the rustic flavour and the melt in your mouth buttery texture. Roasted fennel can replace a snack or you can enjoy it as a healthy appetizer.

My favourite way to serve cooked fennel is in salads, gluten-free pasta or as a side to your main.
