This Roasted Fennel is buttery, caramelized on the edges and deliciously sweet in flavour. This is an easy to prepare side dish that goes fantastically well with roast chicken or fish. This is Vegan, Whole30, Paleo, Keto, Dairy Free, Grain Free, Gluten Free, and Specific Carbohydrate Diet Legal.

Roasted Fennel with Garlic & Herbs

This Roasted Fennel is one of my favourite side dishes because it’s incredibly easy to make, and so delicious. Fennel transforms when roasted, losing all of its licorice flavour and crunchy texture to become caramelized, soft and deliciously buttery. If you hate raw fennel, please don’t write this vegetable off until you have tried roasting it first, there is almost zero resemblance between the two.

Why you are going to love this dish:

  • Prep it ahead: it’s a great side dish to prepare for a dinner party. The fennel can be cut and topped with the herbs and garlic up to a day in advance and then put in the oven 30 minutes before eating.
  • The caramelized and buttery flavour: the fennel becomes soft and practically melts in your mouth when roasted. Thanks to its mild flavour, it’s a great side dish to serve with a bold main as there is no risk in the flavours clashing.
  • Not a fan of the sharp licorice taste raw fennel? I don’t blame you. Raw it can be a bit too overpowering a flavour for some, but once roasted any taste of licorice disappears. Don’t write off fennel until you have tried it roasted, it truly becomes a completely different vegetable
  • It is suitable for almost any diet: I love sprinkling parmesan cheese over the top of the fennel for added saltiness but if you are on a Dairy Free diet the fennel will still be delicious without it.
