Endive: the star of the winter

Winter Vegetable, chicory (or "chicory" in the North) is very easy to prepare and can be eaten raw or cooked. Braised, salad, baked, velvety ... it eats all the sauces! You want to lessen his bitterness? Take a cone 2 or 3 cm at the base of chicory. You can also add a little sugar in their cooking water, or brown sugar in skillet.

To choose it, observe its leaves (they must be firm, tight and white, slightly fringed yellow) and the base of the bud, which should be as white as possible. Keep them in the crisper of the refrigerator, wrapped in tissue paper.
