"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."

Great side dish. I used a lemon flavored olive oil for even more lemony flavor. Great with a pork roast. Easy to do, too.
