Braised Fennel

It doesn’t get much more simple or savory than this side dish. I personally think fennel is both under appreciated and under used so give it a try. If you don’t know fennel well, this is a simple and delicious introduction.


  • 1 Fennel bulb (the recipe in this picture is doubled because we LOVE fennel)
  • 2 good sized pats of butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock


Trim stock end and bottom end of fennel and then cut in half and dig out hard center. Slice fennel and onion, place in a baking dish and add chicken stock and oil, salt & pepper. Toss lightly, throw in butter and bake for 1 hr at 300.
