Roasted Green Beans with Fennel
Fennel is such a great and nutrition addition to any veggie dish. I have done a lot of things with fennel, but I've never roasted it. I decided it would be a great time to try with some tasty green beans. Simple and wholesome, this dish could not be easier to prepare. There is no excuse for not eating your veggies when they taste this good. After a crazy week of work, parties and holiday shopping, sometimes the best thing for you is some nice simple veggies.
