The Endive Series
Endive + Potato
This is a light and refreshing dish that uses produce from the garden or market. It’s so simple, and yet so tasty! Bookmark this recipe as a go-to-summer recipe.
To start, boil the endive (quantity TBD on how much you want to cook), remember to salt the water first.
Once boiled, strain and soak in an ice water bath right away to help take away the bitterness.
Up next, boil the potatoes. Again the quantity is TBD based on how much you want to cook but 4-5 potatoes should suffice.
Once cooked, crush potatoes with a fork into pieces and heat oil in a pan. Once heated place the endive and crushed potatoes in the oil. Add a handful of diced tomatoes, preferably fresh from the garden, add garlic, salt and pepper and tada! There you have it, a quick and easy side dish that uses all your fresh garden produce!
Endive + Parmesan
Here is another recipe for the endive from the garden. This one is my particular all-time favourite. There is something about this unique dish that just tastes so good!
Similar to the first, boil the endive (quantity TBD on how much you want to cook). Remember to salt the water first. Once boiled, strain and soak in an ice water bath right away to help take away the bitterness.
Next, whisk 3 eggs in a bowl and add approximately half a cup of parmesan reggiano (fresh is best) the texture should be thick.
Now heat a pan of oil and add the cooked endive, once heated add the egg mixture. Stir often to break up the egg mixture. Once all of the egg is cooked and similar to the picture below, you are set! Sprinkle some more parmesan before serving and there you go!
