Chicory, witloof, endive – whatever you call it, it’s delicious.

Ingredients

70 g Parmesan; grated
3 tbsp. (45 ml) melted butter
100 g Padkos raw mixed nuts
10 g parsley
Salt and pepper

200 g streaky bacon
6–8 heads of chicory; halved lengthways
2 garlic cloves; peeled and minced

1 onion; peeled and finely diced
1 cup (250 ml) white wine
½ cup (125 ml) chicken stock
Parsley; to garnish

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
2. Place the Parmesan, melted butter, nuts and parsley in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
3. Fry the bacon in a large ovenproof pan until golden and crispy. Remove from the pan, roughly chop and set aside.
4. Fry the chicory in the same pan for 2 min. on each side or until just golden brown, then remove from the pan and set aside.
5. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 5 min. or until translucent, before adding the wine and chicken stock and reducing by a third.
6. Return the chicory and bacon back to the pan and top with the cheese and nut crumb.
7. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 min. or until golden brown and crisp. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
