How to Roast Fennel and Fingerling Potatoes

Sep 30, 2014 | Recipes | 0 comments

Wondering how to roast fennel? Get the simplest recipe. Paired with fingerling potatoes, this makes a great healthy side dish!

Fennel has the reputation of being slightly anise-flavored (think black licorice), but after roasting it takes on a sweet delicate flavor and texture that I just love! This dish is great any time of year but is particularly warming and satisfying in the fall & winter months. Pair with lamb chops, beef roast or a whole roasted chicken for a healthy but heartwarming comfort food meal.
