Baked Parmesan Fennel

Ever heard of Fennel? I never did until I started eating clean!  Then when I went to look for Fennel at Produce Junction (a local vegetable and fruit market) I didn't even know what Fennel looked like.  Thankfully a very kind lady pointed me in the right direction.

and so here is what fennel looks like...







So now you know what Fennel looks like - have no clue what to do with Fennel? I didn't either until I found this recipe and oh this is such a yummy side dish it would pair well with almost any meal!!

sorry not the greatest picture



ingredients...
6 fennel bulbs, top stalks removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
fresh parsley for garnish (forgot this until after the picture)

directions...
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Remove the top stalks and greenage from the fennel bulbs, slice off the very bottoms and cut the bulbs in half lengthwise.
3. Remove the inner triangular core
4. If the bulbs are very large, cut the rest into smaller, bite-sized pieces
5. Place the bulbs in a plastic sealed bag with the rest of the ingredients and shake well to coat the fennel in the oil and spices.
6.  Pour the fennel out into a baking dish and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the fennel is nice and soft
7. Allow to cool slightly and serve

last but not least - enjoy!!!!
