Sometimes one of the best ways to eat vegetables is with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Raw fennel has a very distinct flavour but when it gets roasted the flavour mellows into a delicious caramelized taste. For even more depth of flavour, sprinkle a little Parmesan on top while it's still hot from the oven!
