Recipe

Slow cooking reduces endive's natural bitterness. Good with grilled lamb chops.

Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 5 Mins
Cooking time: 30 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 heads of Belgian endive
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

1. Heat the oil in a large deep frying pan over medium heat. Add the endives, shallot, thyme, and bay leaf. Cook, turning the endives occasionally, for about 3 minutes, until they are golden all over.

2. Add 2 tbsp water and reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan and simmer for 20–25 minutes, or until the endives are tender when pierced with a knife. Season with salt and pepper, then serve with the pan juices spooned over.

Notes

Leftovers can be sliced and tossed with orange segments and vinaigrette to make a salad.
