Not so long ago, I didn’t really know what to do with fennel. The strong licorice type smell really turned me off. However I hate to let things go to waste and am always up for a challenge so I’ve been cooking up fennel in many meals over the last few months. Tonight I wanted to switch it up and make fennel the star in a side dish. I also had some great goat cheese from the farmer’s market so I combined them in this quick and delicious dish.
