Endive, or escarole, is a leafy green related to lettuce. It’s slightly bitter, making it a delicious addition to any meal fresh or cooked. After the lettuce-like green head is harvested, a denser white head more similar in appearance to cabbage grows later in the year.


Endive keeps well in a plastic bag in the fridge for over a week.


Add the fresh greens to salad, or wilt them in just a couple of minutes of cooking. Endive is tasty in soups, and with anything involving lemon and garlic.
