  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
