Sautéed Chicory – New Recipe
Chicory arrived in my CSA box recently and I just wasn't familiar enough with it to be excited. After trying this recipe, I can't wait for my next delivery of vegetables to see if Chicory is inside.
My mom was right when she told me; "You just never know until you give it a try."
1 head chicory, You'll want to cut off the stalky end and remove the outer leaves.
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
red pepper flakes if you desire. (if you know me, its not an option)
First wash the chicory. In a large pot boil water with 1 Tablespoon of salt, add the chicory and cook for about 5 minutes. Drain very well. In a different pot or the same one washed and dried heat the olive oil until medium high heat. Cook the garlic and the pepper flakes for about 30 seconds. Add the chicory, stir to coat. Cook until the water is evaporated. Salt to taste.
To Your Best Health,
