Baked Fennel with Cured Ham

Fennel is low in calories and very tasty, especially when baked. We have added cured ham to make them even more interesting.

Serves 4, Preparation 15 mins, Cooking 20 mins

  • Fresh Fennels, 4
  • Cured Ham, 150 g
  • Pecorino cheese grated, 2 heaped tablespoons
  • EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to taste
  • Unsalted Butter, a knob
  • Black pepper, a tsp


Pre-heat the oven to 200° C / Gas 6

Cut the fennels into half-inch slices, blanch them for 5 minutes, drain and dry them, start make a first layer by arranging them in a lightly oiled oven dish.

Add over the slices of cured ham evenly, make another layer with more fennel slices and finish with slices of cured ham, a sprinkling of grated Pecorino and a pinch of pepper.

Drizzle with oil and bake in a fan oven to 180° C for about 20 minutes, until they begin to have a brownish colour on the surface.
