Vegetables, fennel, baked fennel with oranges 1 Vegetables, fennel, baked fennel with oranges 2

1 large fennel bulb (1 pound or more)

2 navel oranges, peeled

1 medium onion, peeled

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, or 1 teaspoon dried

salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice


 

1.Preheat the oven to 500*. Trim the fennel, reserving some of the dill-like fronds. Cut the fennel, oranges and onion into 1/8 to ¼ inch thick slices.

2. Put the oil in a large skillet or flameproof gratin dish. Add the fennel, oranges, onion and rosemary. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then pour in the orange juice.

3. Bring to a boil on top of the stove; then transfer to the oven and cook for another 15 minutes or so, or until tender. If much liquid remains, cook a little longer (In the unlikely event that it dried out before the fennel becomes tender, add a little more orange juice or some water). Garnish with the reserved fennel fronds and serve hot or warm.
