My friend Ronit created this easy dish, and once I tried it I fell in love with it. It reminds me of pub food, something that would be served next to a burger or sausage, of course it’s a lot healthier than any pub food that I know of. It’s very simple, only a root vegetable and an herb with no special effects, and yet it has a very rich and satisfying flavor and texture. The broiling/grilling brings out the sweetness in both red onion and fennel, and you end up with something that almost tastes like a dessert.
Cooking time: 25 minutes
2 medium size red onions
3 tbsp oil
1 tbsp dry/fresh thyme (optional)
Salt and pepper
Wash fennel. Remove ends and cut each fennel in quarters. Remove core from each quarter. Cut each quarter in to four pieces
Place vegetables on a baking sheet and mix with oil, thyme, and salt and pepper.
