Here’s another great recipe that will put California endive to use as the “slimmer dipper.” Try it at your next gathering!
Makes about 2 cups, serves 8 to 10
1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, defrosted
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons peeled and chopped fresh ginger
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Combine the carrots, orange juice concentrate, olive oil, and ginger in a medium
pot and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes, stirring
occasionally, or until the carrots are very soft. Cool to room temperature. Combine
carrot mixture with remaining ingredients and chop finely in a food processor. Season
to taste with salt and pepper and serve with endive spears.
