About the endives

Anthony forwarded a great recipe for endives and now has some pics for two of them that we have growing in the garden, so hopefully there’ll be some new fans of this under-appreciated green?

For those that like endive cooked, this simple recipe, easy to prepare, brings out the taste and quality of the endive deliciously. It came from a macrobiotic recipe book and I have cooked it often since discovered. It is a favorite with my family and friends alike:

2 medium sized endive, washed
2 cloves garlic, crushed and finely chopped
3 Tbsp tahini
5 Tbsp Tamari or good soy sauce
5 Tbsp water
Olive Oil

Saute garlic with oil for 1 minute then add washed endive. Stir to mix the garlic thru and cook for 5 minutes. Mix together the tahini, tamari and water then add that to the endive, again mixing through. Cook for another 3-5 minutes and it’s done.

I enjoy this dish on its own with crusty sourdough bread, over rice, as as a side to other dishes. Enjoy!
