A really beautiful Bruschetta that has many uses. An easy but delicious dinner for one, a great starter for a dinner party, a treat for when friends are over or just because.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 Bulb Fennel - Stalks removed, bulb halved lengthwise, then cut lengthwise in chunky inch thick pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (For the Fennel)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar (For the Fennel)
  • 3 Roma Tomatoes Diced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic - Peeled and Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • Large Handful Basil - roughly torn
  • To taste Salt and Pepper
  • A few slices Bread of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Spread fennel onto baking tray with baking paper. Rub olive oil on the fennel enough to coat then sprinkle with balsamic vinegar
  2. Roast for 30 – 40 minutes, or until fennel is cooked through and beginning to brown. Remove from oven, allow to cool and then roughly chop
  3. Grill or toast your favourite bread in the oven
  4. Combine roasted fennel, diced tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, salt and pepper. Stir well. Serve atop your freshly warmed bread.


Fennel, for some reason, was a vegetable that I avoided. For no particular reason that I was not sure what it tasted like or what to do with. It is a recent discovery and I absolutely love it. A great addition to crispy summery salads and absolutely heavenly on this Bruschetta.

  • I just love bruschetta. I’ve even had a pizza version for dinner. I, too, have not been sure what to do with fennel and have not tried it, so looking forward to in this way.


  • I prefer a classic bruschetta minus the fennel.


  • This sounds fabulous and I love fennel.


  • This is a nice fresh, yummy treat.


  • This is one of my favourite things to eat at the moment and all the time. I’ve not yet experienced or used fennel before, so will try adding this to see what it’s like.


  • Simple and nice !


  • This looks really amazing… but I am not convinced enough to give it a go with the fennel :). Thanks for posting though.
