Fennel is one of those great root vegetables that when cooked in a certain way they change there flavor completely. It can be added to so many dishes and every time it's a surprise.
One of the favorite dishes in my house is this one. I guess because it has a sweet flavor to it, even the kids go crazy over it.
Some of the healthy benefits of fennel are:
It is reach in iron ,anti acid and extremely helpful for indigestion.
Mothers uses the fennel powder to sooth baby's stomach aches due to inflammation,and some people also chew fennel seeds after food to facilitate digestion and for bad breath.
The other advantage is that once you add a sweet vegetable to your meal you have less chances for craving processed sugar,
2 Bulb of fennel sliced small
5-6 peeled garlic cloves
2Tbs fresh thyme
Salt to taste
Fresh ground pepper to taste
2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 lemon squeezed
Place the fennel garlic and most of the thyme in a glass tray,pour all the sauce ingredients and mix it well until all is absorb.
Place it in the oven at 350 between 15-20 minutes.
When done it should have a lite brown color to it.
It is so good that you will finish it while it's still warm.
