Grilled Fennel Bulbs

Yield: 4 Servings
Total Time:
30 mins


  • about 2-3 Fennel bulbs
  • olive oil
  • parmesan cheese
  • sea salt
  • lemon juice
  • vegetable oil for oiling bbq grate


  1. Wash fennel bubs and cut the stems and root, leaving only the bulb. If it's a very young and tender fennel bulb, you can eat some of the stem. But most of the mature fennel bulbs that you buy from the market have tough, unedible stems.
  2. On grill or bbq, make sure the grate is clean. Heat the grill and then oil the grate on the bbq or grill with a bit of vegetable oil. 

  3. Cut the bulbs in to about 2 inch wedges. Toss with olive oil and place on grill.

  4. Grill each side of bulb or bulb wedges for about 10-20 minutes (depending on toughness of bulb) . The fennel bulb will become soft and tender.
  5. Remove from grill, drizzle with a little more olive oil, salt, some lemon juice and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
