Endive is delicious and nutritious. This quick and tasty recipe is a perfect example of how easy it is to transform everyday vegetables into something truly delightful.

Caramelized Endive

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 heads California Endives, halved lengthwise
  • salt and pepper to taste

Brown Butter Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp salted butter
  • 8 to 10 fresh sage leaves
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

For the caramelized endive, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until simmering. Place endive in skillet, cut side down and cook until nicely browned, about 5 minutes. Carefully turn endive and cook another 2-3 minutes, until tender. Remove from skillet to a platter and tent with foil.

For the sauce, melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Add sage and cook until butter is browned and fragrant and sage is crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Drizzle over endive and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
