Braised Endive, Seared With Lemon Tarragon Vinaigrette from Bistro-To-Go

Our thanks to Chef Jonathan Sheridan, Bistro-to-Go, Kingston, New York

Ingredients:
10 endive
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine
1 tsp sugar
pinch salt and pepper

Preparation:

Trim the outer leaves and the end of the stem of the endive. Cut in half and put into a stainless steel pot with water (just enough to cover). Add the rest of the ingredients and gently stir together.

Take a clean kitchen towel and place on top of the water, then place a clean plate on top of the towel, (which will be used to keep the endive submerged while it’s cooking).

Cook the endive over a low flame, barely simmering, for 20 minutes. Test with a knife for doneness – if the knife offers no resistance, they’re perfectly cooked.

With a pair of tongs, gently remove the endive and put on a rack to drain with the open side down so all the water can drain out.

Take a heavy bottom saute pan and turn the heat up all the way, add 1/4 tsp olive oil and quickly

place the endive, cut side down in the pan and sear for 3 minutes to allow them to caramelize. Remove from the pan and put on a platter to be served.
