Fennel and cauliflower baked is the ideal warm salad but you can also let it cool off or serve it slightly chilled. Feta cheese goes well with these veggies and it does not require much time to prepare.

Preparation time: 25 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp sumac
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 50 gram of Feta cheese
  • some salt and pepper
  • some olive oil


Heat up the oven to 392 F.

Cut the cauliflower into pieces. Cut the fennel into stripes. Add to a bowl.

Crush the garlic in a mortar with some salt and pepper. Add the fennel seeds, the coriander and the sumac and grind until it has the consistence of a paste. Add some olive oil and mix until all the spices dissolve. Pour this sauce over the vegetables and mix them well.

Put the vegetables onto a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes.

Take the tray out of the oven. Drizzle the cheese and some lemon juice over the vegetables and serve.
