Belgian endive is a type of salad green with cream-colored leaves and a slightly bitter taste.


(Serves 4)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 8 heads of Belgian endive, washed and halved
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper, if desired
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


In a large skillet, heat the water over medium heat. Add the endive, cut-sides down. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the outer leaves turn translucent.

Remove from the heat and uncover. Squeeze lemon juice over the endive and add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
