Endive goes particularly well with game, braised as in this recipe or just sliced and stewed in a little butter or stock.


  • 12 firm tightly closed endive (witloof)
  • unsalted butter
  • juice of half an orange


Butter a flame-proof casserole large enough to hold the endive in two layers. Sprinkle with the orange juice, some salt and 6 tablespoons of water. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
