You would be surprised how Roasting brings out fennel's sweet side....this is a delicious & healthy recipe....
Start by cutting the tops off of your whole fennel, cut it in half lengthwise so the roots stay in tact and your cut wedges don't fall apart.
then toss with olive oil, salt & pepper.
Brown fennel on each side in cast iron skillet then transfer to a baking dish.
At this point I add my mixed olives, fresh lemon zest & roast for 20 minutes at 425*
Remove from the oven and squeeze fresh lemon all over.
Serve & enjoy- what a treat! so addicting-
