Vegetarian and Vegan Roasted Fennel

This sweet bulb is a staple in Italy and France. Also known as ‘finocchio’, the Italians cut it up and eat it plain,  or place in salads, add in stews, or roast as a side dish. The subtle flavor of licorice makes this unique and pleasantly surprising vegetable a culinary feature in Mediterranean dishes. img_7070
