1 fennel bulb

1/2 head red cabbage

1 clementine or orange, peeled, sectioned and cut into small pieces

Cut green leaves and white stalks off of fennel and discard.  Trim the bottom, then slice the fennel bulb into slices like you would an onion.  Slice cabbage the same way.  Place vegetables on a foil lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with olive oil spray.  Drizzle vegetables lightly with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to distribute.  Roast vegetables at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until soft and tender.  Remove from oven and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.  Add citrus and toss.  Serve immediately.

    Love the double rainbow you captured Jenna! Roasting veggies in the oven is so easy and we love the flavor. I need to try roasting fennel I’ve only had it fresh in a salad 🙂

  3. I’ve sort of been off my feed this Winter. Having a time finding things to whet my appetite. This looks wonderful! I have everything except the fennel. I’ll have to pick some up.

    Try using coconut oil instead of the cooking spray. The cooking spray contains chemicals that are bad for you. Coconut oil can be bought in large containers and is very healthy.
