Ingredients

1 small clove garlic

1 cup fennel fronds, chopped

Salt

Extra-virgin olive oil

2 bulbs fennel, cut into quarters and tough outside layer removed

1/4 cup water

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a mortar and pestle, pound the garlic and fennel fronds. Add salt and a little olive oil to the garlic mixture.
  3. Heat a little olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat and evenly brown the fennel pieces. Transfer the fennel to a baking sheet and rub with the garlic mixture. Add the water and cover with aluminum foil. Bake until you can pierce the fennel with a fork. Remove the foil and finish roasting until all the liquid has cooked away.
