Have you ever tasted ROASTED FENNEL & PEARS 🍐 If you haven’t and you enjoy both, you need to try this recipe.

Fresh fennel has a very distinctive taste of anise or licorice and can be pungent for some people. Me on the other hand, loves it anyway. If you haven’t tried it roasted, you need to give fennel another chance. It tastes sweet, fresh, and delicious. I used them in this delicious salad that I topped with pan fried pistachio crusted halibut, oh my goodness it was delish! For the dressing, I made a light vinaigrette using my green goddess dressing recipe, which I’ve posted here on Foodtalk Daily. If you don’t feel like making homemade green goddess dressing, you can choose to use any dressing you’d like. Trader Joe’s has one that I used to use frequently until I started making my own.

The roasted fennel and pears can be eaten alone, as a side dish or used to garnish your favorite salad or mixed greens.

Did you know that fennel is considered a super food and its highly nutritious? It’s also low in calories & it’s a great source of fiber 💚

Thank you for stopping by.
