Belgian Endive

Belgian Endive

Taste: It has a slightly bitter taste and a prickly texture.

Smart Substitutions: Escarole, mustard greens, arugula, or spinach.

Recipe Idea: Belgian endive does have a strong flavor and can easily be the star of the show in a main dish. You can roast it whole, stuffed with goat cheese and walnuts, or slice it thin to add to a salad with a milder base, such as spinach. The leaves form a bowl shape, making it easy to use as an aestetically pleasing appetizer idea, like in the recipe below.
