Roasted Fennel

OMG ROASTED FENNEL IS SO DELICIOUS! I love it. New favorite side dish.

Fennel can be on the expensive side, so I only bought two bulbs.  Next time I am buying double that!  Maybe TRIPLE if I'm feeling like a high baller.

You will need:
     *Fennel bulbs
     *Olive Oil
     *Balsamic Vinegar
     *Salt and Pepper
     *Garlic Powder (Optional)
     *Vegan Cheese (Optional)

Preheat your oven to 375.

Cut your fennel bulbs up, about 1/3 of an inch thick.  Put them in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and balsamic vinegar.  Mix everything up - you want each piece of fennel coated!

Place in baking dish and roast for about 45 minutes,or until fennel is tender.  (I decided mine was done when I could stick a fork through the thickest pieces).  If you want to add cheese, take out 5 to 10 minutes before it's done and sprinkle it on. 

SO EASY!
