Roasted fennel with orange and basil
SmartPoints® value per serving
Roasting fennel in the oven intensifies its flavor and brings out its sweetness. It's one of our favorite ways to prepare it. And we love the combination of roasted fennel with citrusy orange segments, which really play well off of each other. A touch of finely grated orange zest and chopped fresh basil really ties this satisfyingly savory side dish together. It's so easy to make and requires only seven ingredients, most of which you probably have in your pantry, so you'll find yourself making it over and over again. Just be sure to use seedless oranges in this recipe.
