Roasted Anise and Leek

We had sausage for dinner tonight, but one of the sides was this roasted dish:

1 leek, cut in half, then sliced (green and white parts)
1 anise (fennel) bulb, halved then sliced
.5 teaspoon orange peel (or bergamot, if you have it)
1 tablespoon each: balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, orange juice
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400F. Mix together on a baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes, then turn oven down to 250F and roast for another 20-30 minutes. Serves 4.

  1. I L'edOL at "or bergamot, if you have it." How many of your readers do you think would be in possession of bergamot peel?

    Hence the "if you have it"? If it's better with bergamot, isn't it worth mentioning just in case? :)
