This is one of my favorite way to eat fennel. I think is just delicious and a perfect side dish for fish or meat.


  • 4 Medium fennel bulbs

  • 2 Lt water

  • 500 ml Milk

  • Juice of half lemon

  • Salt

  • 30 g Parmesan Cheese grated (thin and fresh not in packet)

  • Ground pepper

  • 2 TBS unsalted butter


  • 1.

    Trim and clean the fennel.

  • 2.

    Bring water, milk, lemon juice and salt to a boil in large pot.

  • 3.

    Add the fennel and let it boil, covered until tender (20 to 30 minutes depending on size).

  • 4.

    Preheat the oven to 200C.

  • 5.

    When the fennel is cool enough to handle, cut it diagonally into thick slices.

  • 6.

    Place them in one layer in a battered baking dish.

  • 7.

    Sprinkle them with the parmesan and dot with the butter.

  • 8.

    Bake for 15 minutes or until the top is golden.

  • 9.

    Serve Hot and Enjoy!
