At the latest from November my husband and I start thinking about what to eat during the Christmas holidays. He has still bought extraordinary red wine and … beautiful new wine glasses. He knows exactly what I love: blue porcelain and blue glass! Blue has always been my favourite colour since I was a child. There was even a time, when I was about 20-25 years old, when I only wore blue clothes. Today I am much more colourful – I wear black, white, grey and blue 😉 …
Yesterday I wanted to cook fennel and tomatoes in a new way, so I created this roast vegetable meal which tasted delicious and looks very festive when served on the warmer with candles.
Preheat oven up to 180° C with fan, 200° C without.
Peel and cut onions and garlic and roast in oil. Add cleaned and sliced champignons and fresh and dried cut tomatoes. Salt and pepper. Stir, add about 5 tablespoons vegetable broth and let simmer for 3-5 minutes.
Put thickly sliced fennel bulbs into another pan, add vegetable broth until the slices are almost covered. Spoon mushroom-tomato-mix on it.
In a bowl mix breadcrumbs with grated vegan cheese and top stuffed fennel slices. Put into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Have an eye on it – cheese and breadcrumbs shall get a nice brown crust. Take out and toss with basil.
Enjoy with a glass of your favourite red wine!
