Endive-an Entree or a side dish?

40 days - 40 Lenten Recipes

It's late but it's here.  Endive. In some places it's called Chicory. A leafy green vegetable that when you cook it becomes sweet and soft.  It has a pleasant taste and texture and all you need to do is squeeze the juice of one lemon and a little olive oil over it.  Absolutely delicious, served with a little bread and if you have a little feta cheese.  I'm hoping to grow it in the garden this summer. The planning has started.

Tip: When you are preparing the endive, wash it at least 3-4 times. I usually either use a large bowl or fill the sink and keep washing it. If you don't, you may feel the grit of the dirt. Not good.
Washed well, very good.
