Balsamic Roasted Fennel Salad

Balsamic Roasted Fennel Salad

I always say I LOVE roasting vegetables, especially when you don’t know what to do with it lol. It brings out a sweetness that is so versatile. Finding fennel gave me that usual “what should I cook?” predicament. It’s not often available in Trinidad so this was a rare treat. I decided to keep it simple and not cover it up too much with other flavours. Now what shall I do with those leftover fennel fronds? Let me know in the comments how you eat fennel and any frond recipes!

Ingredients

  • Fennel Bulb, sliced (73 cals)
  • 1/4 cup chickpeas (182)
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced length ways (25)
  • 3/4 cup sweet pepper, large slices (30)
  • 4 leaves Kale, roughly shredded (15)
  • 1.5 Tbsp Olive Oil (180)
  • 3 Cloves garlic, minced (15)
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar (14)
