Winter Squash and Fennel Roast
Apples and cranberries make this sweet-and-savory side dish taste as festive as it looks.
Why This Recipe Works
This Winter Squash and Fennel Roast recipe is a fresh take on typical roasted vegetables. Fennel lends the holiday side dish recipe a licorice bite and sweetness, and dried cranberries add concentrated tartness. To ensure even cooking, we chopped our squash, apples, and fennel as close to the same size as possible. We also found that if we had fennel bulbs with the fronds attached, they could be chopped and added to the roasted vegetables.
