Fennel is a delicious vegetable that smells exactly like black licorice. Even if you don’t like the taste of black licorice, you will love the taste of this roasted fennel. Fennel tends to shrink down when cooked, so make more than you think you will need. The above picture only fed two of us as a side dish.
