Ingredients

1 large bulb fennel (about 1-1/2 lbs/750 g)
2 tbsp (25 mL) butter
1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh thyme
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground black pepper

1 cup (250 mL) fresh breadcrumbs
2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Trim root end and cut top fronds off fennel bulb and discard. Cut bulb in half lengthwise and cut each half into 8 wedges.

3. In a large skillet, melt 2 tbsp (25 mL) of butter over medium-high heat; add fennel wedges, thyme, garlic and pepper, sauté for about 8 minutes or until light golden. Scrape into 10 cup (2.5 L) shallow baking dish. Pour cream over top.

Tips

Make fresh breadcrumbs by placing sliced bread or buns in a food processor and pulsing until crumbs form. Place any extra in the freezer for another recipe.
