This is an utterly wonderful recipe and I highly recommend it - pure taste sensation. And all you need are those fennel bulbs - Lloyd
10 fennel bulbs
5 Tablespoons olive oil
Seasoning salt and pepper
6 garlic cloves, peeled
Heat the oil in a frying pan or large pot. Add the fennel, salt and pepper and sauté over a medium heat until the fennel begins to brown - about 20 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to fry until it is light brown. Add sufficient boiling water to cover a third of the way up the fennel, then lower the heat. Simmer without the lid until the fennel is very soft, about 15 minutes.
The idea is to cook the fennel slowly until all the water has evaporate. Serve hot and garnish with chopped parsley. A wonderful dish.
