Roasted Fennel with Dill and Lemon

Roasted Fennel with Dill and Lemon

Keep some of the fennel bulbs' cores intact to prevent the wedges from falling apart.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 4 wedges)


  • 2 none large fennel bulbs (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh dill, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice


1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Cut each bulb in half lengthwise. Remove most of core using a sharp knife. Cut each bulb half lengthwise into quarters. Combine fennel, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon dill, and pepper in a small roasting pan; toss well to coat. Cover and bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until almost tender.

3. Uncover fennel; bake an additional 20 minutes or until lightly browned and tender, turning occasionally. Place fennel in a large bowl. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon dill, and juice; toss gently to combine.
