A Bitter Sweet Symphony

Today I am presenting an other Recipe from the “Vegan Lovestory” Cook book by Hiltl and Tibits.

Baked glazed Chicory topped with Blood Orange fillets 


I really enjoyed this beautiful side dish (even though it looks more beautiful before baking. Maybe next time I poor the sauce over the Chicory and then layer the Oranges on top….) And look at the color of the Oranges!!!!


A very fast prepared dish with simple ingredients, yet a combination you don’t eat a lot. A little bit of Sweet, Bitter, Sour and Salty. Have a try! You won’t regret!


Love, Emily


4 Portions:

  • 3 Chicory heads

Don’t know how to fillet the Orange? –>
