  • 2 large fennel bulbs, about 1 lb.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Remove the stems of the fennel. Rinse and dry the bulbs. Slice each bulb in half lengthwise. With the cut side down, slice the bulb vertically into 1/2-inch-thick slices, leaving the core intact.
  • Arrange the fennel slices in a 13 X 9 -inch baking dish. Drizzle with the olive oil and use your hands to coat the fennel pieces with the oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, add the Parmesan and toss to coat. Return to the oven and bake until the fennel is fork-tender and the top is golden brown, about 20 more minutes.
