New Discover Endive Video!

Dr. Oz recommends one ounce of raw endive each week. That’s only one head of endive! In this video, culinary expert and cookbook author Jill Silverman Hough shows you how easy it is to incorporate endive into your weekly menu with five different and tasty ideas.

FIVE EASY WAYS TO GET YOUR ONE CUP OF ENDIVE A WEEK

Recently Dr. Oz announced that eating 1/2 cup of endive two times a week is a fantastic tool in preventing ovarian cancer. That’s only a cup a week, or the equivalent of one head of endive! Even better, you never need to wash endive before using AND it costs less than bagged salad. 

Here are some easy and delicious ways to include one endive in your diet each week:

1 – IN A SALAD
Slice endive heads crosswise, discarding the core, Serve by itself  or mix with other lettuces in a salad. Crisp and refreshing, endive adds crunch along with a captivating bittersweet flavor.

2 – AS A DIPPER
Individual endive leaves make a crisp dipper for hummus, salsa or other healthy dips.  There’s only one calorie per leaf, that’s why endive is called the “Slimmer Dipper.”

3 – AS A CRADLE
Use curvacous endive leaves as an elegant cradle or boat for almost any filling. It holds up better than chips or crackers, is less expensive, and healthier too.
4 – WITH FRUIT, NUTS OR CHEESE
Pair endive with fresh fruit, such as apples or pears, walnuts or other nuts, and cheeses–especially blue cheese in a salad or as a workday snack.
5 – IN A SMOOTHIE
Endive’s naturally bittersweet taste blends well with fruits and vegetables, offering a complex, earthy balance to healthy smoothies.
And Don’t Forget the Kids!
Children love the crunch of endive.  Here’s a recipe for a healthy fruit dip that will put smiles on their faces.

Raspberry-Yogurt Dip

Makes about 2 cups, serves 8 to 10
1 cup walnuts
1 cup frozen raspberries, defrosted and drained
1 cup  unflavored Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
