Buttery Braised Endives

The idea of braising this peppery bitter vegetable in butter sounded so good and I was really
craving this buttery braised endive dish.

The endives that I had were fairly large so I decided to cut them in half so that they could cook a bit faster. All in all, the dish was finished in about 45 minutes. The result?

Braising transforms the endives into both a hearty AND light vegetable dish. I will definitely make this again!

Buttery Braised Endive
Serves 1-2


2 heads of endive, halved
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/8 cup of water
1 tablespoon lemon juice


Place endives, cut side down, in a small skillet. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a high simmer over medium heat for about 15 minutes. Cover with parchment paper cut to size of the skillet or partially cover with a lid. Turn the heat to medium low and continue simmering for about 20-30 minutes or until the endive is very tender. Add water as needed so that there is always about a 1/4-inch of liquid in the pan. Add salt to taste and serve warm.
