Belgian Endive - 1 Lb


Belgian endives are a torpedo-shaped member of the chicory family. Endives taste like radicchio crossed with romaine lettuce: mildly earthy, fresh, and pleasantly bitter. Belgian endives have a crunchy texture when eaten raw transforming into earthy and savory when cooked properly. These vegetables are excellent raw, roasted, braised, or sautéed.


Uses: The individual leaves of endives can be used raw as an edible spoon for appetizers. Roast endives that have been halved until deep caramelized and pair with nuts and cheese for a delicious side.
