Fennel, Potato
and Mustard Casserole

Serves 6
Season: Winter


The important thing with this dish is to roast the vegetables until they are very soft and browned. Cooked in this way, they will contribute to the moisture and intensity of flavor in the dish. I have made the dish with Jerusalem artichokes and potatoes instead of beans and that was very good too.


1 large fennel bulb
3/4 lb. (12 oz/400g) pinkeye or other
   waxy potato, washed well with skins left on
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons stock
   (3-1/2 fl. oz./100 ml)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup navy (haricot) beans,
   soaked and cooked until tender
1/2 bunch fresh fennel leaves


Cut the fennel and potatoes in half and then into wedges.

Place in a baking dish.

Add the garlic.

Rub the oil and salt into the cut vegetables.

Add the mustard, stock, lemon juice and pepper and mix through to coat evenly.

Bake at 335 degrees F. (170 degrees C.) for about 35 minutes or until the vegetables are golden brown and collapsing; turn twice during cooking.

Add the navy beans and continue to cook for a further 15 minutes.

Serve with sprigs of fresh fennel leaves.
