Cauliflower fennel gratin | insimoneskitchen.com

Fennel is one of those dishes where you’re either in the love or in the hate camp. I am clearly in the love camp judging also by the previous recipes I posted with fennel. This combination with cauliflower (and a lot of cheese) is maybe not a combination I would have thought of but it is surprisingly tasty so I can highly recommend it. If you want to make it a bit less vegetarian and more a complete meal you can easily add some ground beef into the ovendish and have everything together.

O and no this one is not part of the Donna Hay Challenge, but you’ll see more of that pass by.
