Braised Belgian Endive

These are really good. I think I'll make them again soon and post a picture :) If you are not doing dairy, experiment with other fats.


2 Belgian endives
2-3 Tbsp. ghee or butter
1 cup chicken broth
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. honey
salt and pepper to taste


Melt butter in a heavy bottomed pan that is big enough to hold your endives. Wash and trim the ends of the endives. Slice in half lengthwise and add them to the pan. Cook over medium heat, until the edges are nicely browned, butter will brown too. Add chicken broth. Mix lemon juice and honey and drizzle over endives. Cover loosely (allow some steam to vent on the side). Simmer for 20 minutes or until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
