Roasted Fennel with Parmesan Vinaigrette

roasted fennel with parmesan vinaigrette

Serves 4

Roasting fennel concentrates its natural sweetness. A sprinkling of Parmesan gives it a crunchy crust.
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (4 tsp.)
  • 1 Tbs. red wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 medium fennel bulbs, quartered
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat baking sheet or roasting pan with cooking spray.

2. Blend oil, garlic, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in mini food processor until smooth. Toss fennel with oil mixture and Parmesan in large bowl.

3. Place fennel on prepared baking sheet, and roast 35 to 40 minutes, or until fennel quarters are tender and outer edges are golden brown.

This is ridiculously good! I had some leftover fennel to use and this recipe could not have been more perfect. Without thinking about it, I used the full sauce recipe for less than 2 fennel bulbs but that just made it all the yummier.

Andrew, I imagine you're thinking of gran padano, which is not vegetarian. Generally speaking, parmesan is fine.

Love this recipe! I use the fennel stalks in fennel, spinach and split pea soup, then save the bulbs for roasting. Yum!
