Looks delicious! Thanks for this great recipe – never knew what else to do with Chicory than using it in Salads!
thank you! my grandmother used to wrap the chicory with cooked ham and baked it in the oven with a bit of cream and grated parmesan. before you bake it, you also blanch the chicory for 1-2 minutes in water. a very easy and tasty side dish.
must try for sure!! thank you Emily!
