Radicchio and Endive Side Dish

Source: Mad Hungry, May 2011


  • 3 heads radicchio
  • 3 heads endive
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 15.5 ounce can chickpeas or cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup walnuts


  1. Tear radicchio and endive leaves into bite-size pieces and rinse in a strainer. Shake out all of the water.

  2. In a large skillet, saute 2 cloves of chopped garlic with about 2 tablespoons of oil. When garlic is beginning to slightly brown, throw in the radicchio and endive. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with a bit more olive oil. Stir radicchio and endive and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally to avoid browning too much.

  3. Meanwhile in a smaller skillet, add remaining chopped garlic clove with a tablespoon of olive oil. As garlic browns, add chickpeas and the 3/4 cup of walnuts. Season with a little salt and pepper and a drop of olive oil and stir. Cook for 3 minutes, until chickpeas are heated through.

  4. Pour radicchio and endive into a serving bowl. Then pour the chickpea/walnut mixture on top. Serve warm.

    LOVE THIS RECIPE! I have been looking for a new side dish that was healthy and green-this was perfect! The endive was the perfect compliment to the radicchio! Thanks for the recipe, John! Looking forward to making the eggplant recipe next!
