Creamy Baked Fennel

    45 minutes

    Fennel is a great accompaniment to many Italian dishes as it meshes very well with tomato flavours. Here it is simply baked with cream and creme fraiche.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 bulbs fennel
    • 1 tablespoon butter for frying
    • 3/4 cup (180ml) single cream
    • 3/4 cup (170g) creme fraiche or sour cream
    • 2 tablespoons of freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Cut the base from the fennel bulbs, then cut a cone shape into the base to remove the core. You can see the core because it is whiter in colour than rest of the vegetable. This is optional, but helps the fennel cook faster. Slice the fennel vertically into 5mm thick slices.
    3. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the fennel, and fry for about 5 minutes. Stir in the cream and sour cream until well blended. Transfer to a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.
    4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden brown and the fennel is tender when pierced with a fork.
