Use 6 heads endive (red, white, or a combination), halved lengthwise through the root end.

Serves 4


For the marinade
6 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons dried lavender flowers (optional)
3 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
3/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a large non-metallic bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients. Add the endive and toss. Set aside at room temperature to marinate, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.

Prepare a grill to medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill the endive cut side down until lightly charred, 3 to 5 minutes depending on your grill. Turn, brush with any remaining marinade, and cook until crisp-tender and lightly charred, 3 to 5 minutes depending on your grill. Serve warm.
