Ingredients

For the fennel

For the topping

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a saucepan, then add the fennel, cover and stew over a low heat for 15 mins. Add the garlic and continue to cook for 10-20 mins until the fennel is soft (the timing depends on how thick the fennel is). Add the tomatoes and simmer, uncovered, for 10 mins until the fennel is coated in a thick tomato sauce. Tip everything into a shallow gratin dish. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

  • STEP 2

    While the fennel is cooking, tip all the topping ingredients except the olives into a food processor and blitz to crumbs. Add the olives and pulse until chopped, but not blended. Scatter the crumbs generously over the fennel, drizzle with the rest of the oil, then bake for 20 mins until golden.

RECIPE TIPS
EAT IT RAW

Fennel is delicious raw. Remove the tough outer skin, finely slice the bulb and cut away any core. Toss in a zesty dressing of olive oil and lemon juice and serve with shaved parmesan.
