- Cut off the green stems and a thin layer of the base (where the roots would be) of the fennel. Peel the onion and cut one end off. On a mandolin slicer, thinly slice the fennel and onion. Most pieces will look like rings. Cut the rings in half.
- Melt 2 tbsp ghee in a cast iron skillet. On medium-high heat add your fennel and onion. Season with a dash of salt and pepper. 3. Cook on medium-high heat for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so the ingredients don't stick. Add the additional tbsp of ghee (or more!). When it looks like they are brown and done, cook them for another 10 minutes.
- Yes, it's actually that easy.
