"I have never eaten or made anything with Fennel ever! I like licorice flavour but was not sure about it in a vegetable. So my daughter brought up 5 bulbs and so I thought I would roast them. What a delightful delicate flavour! Turned out to be my new favvy veggie. After tasting them, I thought a nice splash of fresh lemon juice would make them more vibrant in taste...and it did. **Note** I found I like the roasted fennel a wee bit on the crunchy side. If you don't...then cook a wee bit longer."

Step by Step Method
Preheat oven to 400F.
Cut the top of the fennel bulbs just below the fronds and cut a slice of the bottom; rinse under cool water and drain on paper towels.
Cut into 1/8ths and place into a large bowl.
Drizzle oil over and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Gently combine with your hands until all fennel is coated.
Spray a large baking sheet and place fennel on sheet.
Roast for about 8 minutes or until golden on the bottom and turn over.
Continue roasting until it reaches your desired doneness, anywhere from 5-10 minutes.
Sprinkle fresh lemon juice over and serve.
