It took me a few years and some good recipes before I fell in love with veggies in the chicory family (escarole, radicchio). Initially they were a bit too bitter for my taste. The right recipes changed that, and now, I can’t imagine fall without escarole soup and roasted radicchio sprinkled with blue cheese.
This week you will find escarole in your CSA share. If escarole is a new-to-you veggie, I hope you will give it a try over the next few weeks. The right recipe can make the difference – here are a few of my favorites.
