YUM! I noticed some great looking organic fennel in the grocery store the other day and picked up some. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it but bought it anyway!

When I was young I remember holiday dinners were always finished with a stalk of fennel and a small glass of red wine for dipping. The licorice-taste and crisp texture always had me looking forward to this tradition.

I decided to roast the fennel, using the entire head (about the size of a fist), without the leaves. The result…bellissimo!

One thought on “Coconut Milk Risotto with Roasted Fennel, Broccoli and Cauliflower”

  1. This recipe was outstanding. I used brown millet ramen noodles partly because I wanted more of a pasta type dish and partly because I forgot the rice at the grocery store!!! My kids ate this dish up and were begging for more! I made the sauce separate and then added it to the noodles. This is a must try!
