In the meantime, cut the remaining half onion into strips and fry them together with the fennel, also cut into strips, with a little paint.

Then fill up with the tomato juice and the vegetable broth and let it simmer. Fry cherry tomatoes with a small sprig of rosemary and salt in olive oil. At the end, turn the onion belly under the fennel-tomato-vegetables and season with salt, pepper and chopped parsley.
