Baked fennel with Parmesan cheese

7 comments Mar 27th, 2010 | By | Category: easy and fast, Recipes

Certainly one of the most simple ways of preparing fennel. Certainly my favourite one. Only few ingredients are needed and the taste of the fennel develops fully. I love this as a warm salad for lunch or a side dish for dinner.

preparation time: 3 minutes
baking time: 20 minutes
easy to do recipe


  • 2 fennel bulbs
  • 100 gram of Parmesan cheese, grated
  • some olive oil
  • salt and pepper


wash the fennel and dry it with a towel. cut in thin slices and put the slices into a baking pan.
Dribble some olive oil over it and add the cheese on top. Salt and pepper the dish. It won’t need much salt!

Bake in the oven at 200 degrees centigrade for 20 minutes. Use the broiler for the last fet minutes to give the dish some colour, if wanted.

  1. A delicious combination! That is a perfect side dish!



  2. How nice to have an easy and tasty idea to follow!

  3. The greatness of simplicity! :)

  4. Yes well put simplicity – i like simple dishes. i must admit I rarely prepare fennel but I think this preparation (and also your fennel bread) will be this week’s trail recips; thanks for sharing Tobias!

  5. I love fennel and this seems a perfect and simple way to prepare it. I like to do this with leeks also. Great dish, Tobias!

  6. A great way to cook fennel Tobias! I admit I have never tried it as such, but it sounds quite good. I tried to make a fennel/potato gratin over the winter but it didn’t turn out right. This sounds much simpler and quite flavorful.

  7. Wow that looks so yum, loved the flavours and the dish, simple yet so delicious
