Dairy Free Fennel Bake

A few years ago I became a big lover of fresh fennel. I had not eaten it much while growing up, but as an adult love it to pieces. I discovered this recipe when the CSA box we were getting delivered kept having bunches of celery week after week. I originally made this with celery but now make it with fennel. This recipe for dairy free fennel bake  is my adaptation from one of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks.
