I love the texture of braised fennel. Something like an artichoke heart.

What you will need

2 bulbs of fennel

2 tbsp butter

1/2 a lemon

How to cook

1

Delicious and easy!

2

Remove fronds

Slice away all of the greens. You can use the wispy fronds as a garnish if you like. It has a mild fennel flavor.

3

Slice in half

Slice the fennel in half through the axis. If viewing the fennel from under the bulb, it has a generally ovular shape. Slice through this oval at it's widest point.

4

Remove root tip

The base is usually a little browned. Slice off the ugly parts.

5

Remove outer layer

Sometimes the outer layers can be dirty or dingy.

6

Cut into wedges

Slice into wedges. Be careful to leave enough core that each wedge stays together as a whole.

7

Add lemon

Arrange the fennel wedges in a sautée pan over medium-low heat. Add lemon juice.

8

Salt and pepper

Season lightly with salt and pepper.

9

Add butter and cover

Place the butter on top of the fennel.

10

Cook for about 15 minutes

Put the lid on the pan. Cook until fennel is browned on one side.

11

Flip

12

All done!

When the fennel is dark and caramelized on one side, flip it over to brown the opposite face.
