  • 1 pound fresh fiddlehead ferns
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (I used butter flavoured)
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
  • 3 ounces feta cheese (crumbled)


  • Preheat oven to 425º F.
  • Wash the fiddleheads (several times) and pat dry. I used a kitchen towel.
  • Remove any loose brown leaves, and trim any dry ends.
  • Place cleaned fiddleheads into a roasting dish.
  • Coat with the olive oil.
  • Season with salt & pepper. I use smoked sea salt.
  • Roast for 25-30 minutes, stirring about 1/2 way through.
  • Remove from oven and place on a serving tray.
  • Garnish with the crumbled feta cheese.
  • ENJOY!
