Roasted Green Beans with Fennel

Fennel is such a great and nutrition addition to any veggie dish. I have done a lot of things with fennel, but I’ve never roasted it. I decided it would be a great time to try with some tasty green beans. Simple and wholesome, this dish could not be easier to prepare. There is no excuse for not eating your veggies when they taste this good. After a crazy week of work, parties and holiday shopping, sometimes the best thing for you is some nice simple veggies.

UPDATE: My skillet lasagna made the Top 9 today!!!! Thanks to Ann for letting me know. Check it out here or click the sidebar ad.

    This looks good! I've never been a fan of fennel, but I've also never roasted it! Congrats on Top 9 for your skillet lasagna!

    Contrary to Ann, I adore fennel (hide the black Liquorice too!) particularly roasted fennel. One of my favourite restaurants in Toronto serves grilled calamari with a little fennel salad and mango drizzle, it is sooooo good!
