I bought some endive a week ago and I've actually never had it. I was wondering if any of you knew of a good way to prepare it? Thanks in advance!

Wash it, take the leaves apart add a slice of pear and a dollap of blue cheese per leaf. Had it at a wedding once.

I char grill it & serve it with a low fat blue cheese dressing, grilling seems to take away the bitterness,

I have a recipe.

Chicken and Cheddar Pasta Toss

6 oz. No boil Lasagna noodles, cut into strips
2 cups frozen chopped chicken (pre-cooked)
3 oz. low fat cheddar cheese, cubed
1 medium sweet pepper, green, yellow or red, cut into strips
1 oz. pepperoni, chopped
1 bottle 8 oz. italian salad dressing
1/8 t. pepper
5 cups endive, torn into pieces
1 cup cherry tomatoe, halved

In a large bow mixing bowl, cover noodles with boiling water. Let stand about 15 minutes, separating noodles with a fork. Drain. Rinse in cold water , drain.

Return noodles,to bowl, stir in chicken, cheddar cheese, sweet pepper, and pepperoni. Add dressing and pepper, gently toss to coat.

Cover and chill at least 2 hours, up to 24 hours.

Before serving, add endive and tomatoes. Gently toss to mix.

I have seen it used as a boat/wrap for chicken or tuna salads or lightly grilled as a side dish.

I really like that idea! I have celiacs too, so it would make a great healthy alternative to a traditional wrap.

Endive is a salad green, correct? I myself would eat it with a little oll and vinegar or vinagarette.

Well have you looked in our recipe section (find it in the column of links on the left of this page)? I did a search of the recipes and found 7 recipes containing endive. Find them here ~

How do you get to the recipe section ?

If you are using a computer look to the left side of your screen where you will see a list of links in a vertical column. It is the 8th link down from "Home". If you are using an app for an ipad or smart phone, well I don't know how that looks so I can't tell you. Could anyone using a smartphone app share how to find "recipes link?

Hello lady.. I am in my car using my iPad.. I also have the iPhone. On your phone go to Diabetic Connect.. Click You Profile.. When there you will see "go to home". Click on that and the recipes are about 1/2 way down the left hand side. It is exactly as you would see and use you laptop/computer.

Praying you and yours have a safe trip! Don't spend too much in AC! (save some for LV — LoL!)

Thanks James.. It's funny you mentioned Las Vegas because I funded this entire trip (including 80.00 for tolls) from my winnings in Las Vegas from November. Lets hope I can keep it all. LOLOL .. Hugz

I have had endive in my salads but personally am not a fan. I have however been introduced to Kale and have used that in salads, cooked it and also made kale chips.
