Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Carrots and Fennel

Last updated: February 21, 2024

Looking for a recipe that contains a lean protein source? Or a lower-fat main dish for a special occasion? Look for cuts of meat that contain the word “loin,” such as tenderloin or sirloin. Pork tenderloin has only 2 grams of saturated fat per 3- to 4-ounce serving, yet it tastes and looks delicious and is so easy to prepare. This dish also includes fennel and carrots, which give it a unique blend of flavors. This impressive meal looks like you spent hours preparing it, yet it only takes about 15 minutes of your time to prep. While it’s baking in the oven, you have time to pull together the rest of the meal. Serve it with fresh fruit or a nice, crusty loaf of whole-grain bread, and you have a complete meal. Enjoy!
