Grilled Endive


There’s nothing more delicious than grilling on a summer evening. Give grilled endive a try, for a new twist on your grilled dinners. Grilled endives are particularly elegant looking when they accompany many main courses that have also been grilled. The delicious herb filled oil gives them an especially nice flavor.

What You Will Need:

Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Sea salt

How To:

Preheat your grill to high heat on one side.

Wash your endives and cut off part of the base, but still leaving the leaves connected. Cut endives in half lengthwise. Let dry.

In a bowl, combine olive oil, thyme, vinegar, sea salt, and garlic. Mix together. Then brush onto both sides of the halved endive. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Take a piece of foil and spray it with cooking spray. Place your prepared endives on the foil, then place on the grill.

Once the edges have cruled and are brown, remove the endives from the grill. This should take about 4 mintues for them to cook on the grill. Place the endives on a plate and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

Serve warm and enjoy!
