Fennel gratin

Happy Valentine’s
day!! <3 <3
Here’s a
very simple, quick and super yummy recipe.
Really yummy
as I usually don’t eat 
fennel, but this recipe… I just love it!
And very simple,
you can also make it for tonight if you want to prepare a homemade romantic dinner,
but you were out of ideas!


What you
need for 3/4 persons:

– 2 fennel
– Olive oil
– Pepper
– 2 slices of ham
– 3/4 ¾ glass of milk
– Raped Parmesan

First of
all, turn on the oven to 180° (I told you it’s a very quick recipe! ;p).
Wash the
fennel, cut it into small cubes and put them in an oven dish.

Season the
fennel with olive oil and pepper.
I don’t use
salt, but if you’re used to it, you may add some salt too.

But just
for the record, the salt contained in food covers the recommended daily dose, the
salt we add to our food is not necessary for us. People add salt just because
they’re used to it, because they’re used to the taste of it, but not because
they need it.
Try to stop
this habit, at the beginning you may find your food unsalted, but after a while
you’re going to get used to it, to rediscover the true flavor of food and you’ll
eat in a healthier way.
You can
also use other things to flavor your food: herbs, grains, homemade sauces…
Add half a
glass of water too, to avoid the 
fennel to burn during the cooking.


Cut the ham
into little pieces and throw it over the fennel.


Pour the
milk over the fennel and the ham.


Add the
raped parmesan over everything and put it in the oven for about 40 minutes. 


When the top is grilled you can stop the cooking.


You can
serve the fennel as a main dish, with some salad for instance or as a side
dish to go with some fish or meat.


And you can
keep it for a couple of day in the fridge and bring it with you also to work,
school, university… It’s also very good warm up the day after! 😉
