This is a hearty vegetarian main dish, but you could also serve it with roast pork, chicken or turkey.  The fig jam works well with each of these meats.  Any leftover jam will keep in the refrigerator for a week.  It’s also great spread on crusty bread.

I like the simple elegance of this dish.  It’s great for a dinner party, but simple enough for an everyday salad too.  The sweet-tart apples pair well with the sweet fennel and juicy bursts from the pomegranate seeds.  The cucumbers help to balance out the flavors.

Roasted Fennel, Carrots, and Olives with Rosemary

Roasted root vegetables are a favorite fall/winter dish of mine.  Last week at the market I saw someone with fennel and it just sounded so hearty and warming.  The sweet anise flavor of the fennel paired with the woodsy aroma of rosemary would be the perfect cold weather dish.  Serve it with roast pork or chicken for a big meal, or as a vegetable main dish.

Fennel is a nice hearty, slightly sweet, and crunchy vegetable.  It has a slight anise flavor and does well braised or roasted.  Serve along side white fish, chicken, or pork.
