lemon pepper fennel with raw broccoli salad

hey everyone! hope your day is going brilliantly so far :)

today i want to tell you the wonders of fennel! i actually have never really been a big fan of liqorice flavour, but fennel somehow is wonderful, especially when roasted...

and fennel is just so beautiful, isn't it?

quarter the fennel lengthways and roast in a foil wrap with some lemon rind, pepper, salt and olive oil - enjoy!

serve with a raw broccoli salad (marinated in olive oil, with tomato, spinach and gherkin) - i also love the texture of the cooked fennel, it's kind of soft yet with a little bite.

do you like fennel? how do you like to cook or serve it?

currently loving: city life eats lunchboxes - i actually cannot get enough of them!!
