Roasted Fennel & Artichoke Hearts- Current Veggie Obsession

I must have made this recipe ten times since seeing it in Martha Stewart!   I knew instantly I wanted to try it because I had not cooked with fennel before and wanted to try something new (plus I LOVE artichokes!)

Yummm, Crisp out of oven



Recipe from Martha Stewart Living February

Ingredients

1 fennel bulb (12 ounce), cut into 3/4-inch wedges. 1 tablespoon fronds reserved for garnish.
1 can whole artichoke hearts in water (13.75 ounces), drained, patted dry, and cut in half lengthwise
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425-degrees. 

2. Place fennel & artichokes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil, season with salt and pepper. 
3. Roast vegetables for 35 minutes, tossing after 20 minutes.
4. Drizzle with olive oil & lemon juice. Add parsley, and toss!


I use recipes as "guidelines" some things I have tried:
Zest of a lemon- I love more lemon, if you do too, add the zest of a lemon
Thyme- I was out of parsley & thyme was a tasty replacement

Enjoy!
