Roasted Fennel Hummus is my new favorite hummus recipe. I’m not exaggerating but I make hummus at least 4 times a week. That’s how much we love hummus in our home, it’s our go-to spread or dip. I have used it in wraps, pizza, stews, sandwiches, pasta, bagel etc. It is not only easy to prepare but the flavors are limitless.

What is Fennel?

Fennel is a vegetable with a bulbous base, it has a fronded top that looks similar to dill. It has a slightly sweet flavor with a mild anise or licorice flavor,  it is crunchy and great for salads. I decided to let the anise flavor shine in this recipe so I left out cumin which would overpower the flavor.
