    1

    Roast the Fennel

    Trim top and bottom of fennel bulb, quarter lengthwise, remove tough core from each slice, and cut into ½" slices. Toss fennel on prepared baking sheet with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast 12 minutes. Fennel will finish cooking in a later step. While fennel roasts, prepare ingredients.

    Grill the Ciabatta

    Brush ciabatta with 2 tsp. olive oil. Lightly spray grill or grill pan with cooking spray. Place ciabatta on hot grill until lightly charred, 30-90 seconds per side. Set aside until cool enough to handle, then tear into 1" pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. If too difficult to tear, feel free to cut. Toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and sugar. Keep grill at medium heat.

  • Step 4 - Finish Fennel and Ciabatta

    Finish Fennel and Ciabatta

    Once fennel has roasted 12 minutes, push to one half of baking sheet. Place ciabatta on other half and sprinkle any sugar left in mixing bowl on top. Roast until ciabatta is crunchy and browned, and fennel is tender and lightly caramelized, 7-10 minutes. Reserve mixing bowl; no need to wipe clean. While fennel and ciabatta roast, grill vegetables.

  • Step 5 - Grill the Vegetables
