2 large fennel bulbs (2 pounds)—halved lengthwise, cored and sliced
lengthwise 1/2 inch thick
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon herbes de Provence
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 375°. In a large bowl, toss the fennel with the olive oil and herbes de Provence and season with salt and pepper. Scrape the fennel onto a large rimmed baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes, until beginning to brown. Toss the fennel. Increase the oven temperature to 425° and roast for about 15 minutes longer, until golden and tender. Transfer to plates and serve.
