A simple warm salad of roasted vegetables and fresh herbs — a good dinner side dish or as a complement to pilaf or other ‘grains and greens’ style salads. Add a little lemon juice, black olives or both to broaden out the flavour.
2T of olive oil, divided
1 fennel bulb
1 red pepper
1/4t of coarse sea salt
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
1T of fresh dill, minced
1T of fresh chives, minced
Black pepper and sea salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Trim the fennel bulb to remove fronds and core
Slice the bulb into quarters.
Lightly oil the whole pepper and the fennel with 1T of oil and sea salt.
Roast the red pepper until lightly charred.
Remove from the pan and set aside to cool until the fennel is done.
Roast the fennel until it starts to brown at the edges (about 45m). Ovens vary; use the colour as your guide.
When done, remove the fennel, and let cool while you peel, core, see and coarsely chop the pepper.
Coarsely chop the fennel.
Toss the fennel, red pepper, herbs, remaining 1T of oil and nutritional yeast until well combined.
Season to taste.
