Ingredients

  • 4 large fennel bulbs, trimmed and cut into quarters lengthways
  • 290g jar pitted black olives, drained and halved
  • 3 whole garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 large onions, cut into 1cm thick wedges
  • 250g ciabatta, torn
  • 440g cherry tomatoes
  • 10 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 125g mozzarella, torn

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil, then add the fennel and cook for 5 minutes or until just tender when pierced with a fork. Drain.
  2. Put the fennel and all the remaining ingredients, except the olive oil and mozzarella, into a large, deep roasting dish. Season with salt and pepper, then drizzle over the oil and toss together.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning halfway through, until the vegetables are golden and the bread is toasted. Dot the mozzarella over and cook for 5 more minutes or until melted, then serve.
