Maple Roasted Fennel

Maple Roasted Fennel

Serves 4 to 6
Roasted fennel is a great side dish to serve in the fall and winter, especially when it's flavored with maple syrup. Serve alongside roasted fish or pork and drizzle with a few extra drops of maple syrup, if desired.
  • 4 fennel bulbs, trimmed and thinly sliced through the root so that slices hold together
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Arrange fennel slices on baking sheets in a single layer.

Combine maple syrup and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl then lightly brush each fennel slice with this mixture and season with salt and pepper. Flip each slice and repeat brushing and seasoning on other side.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until fennel is lightly browned. Remove from oven and flip all slices. Rotate trays and bake 8 to 10 minutes longer, or until fennel is tender. Remove and serve immediately.
