Not all vegetables are easy to prepare for your family and get joy all over. But this recipe for chicory casserole even my kids loved.
Well, if you enter a weekly coop produce subscription, you get surprises. For example Belgian endive, something no one in this family likes, and some even up to now refused to eat. But throw it away and not eating it isn’t an option, so I decided to find a recipe that is edible, and maybe even tasty.
And just when you’ve already tried several options (stir-fry with soy sauce, thin rolling up in ham with cheese cream sauce) and still negative reactions are your part, the tide can turn.
In a national news paper about a week or two ago, a recipe of a chicory casserole was written. Everybody loves casseroles over here, so that’s already a plus.
The recipe is slightly adapted, and I put it on the table tonight and … (drum roll) … it was approved. There was even one who said it was tasty. Tada there I did it. And such a recipe, it is of course to be placed on my site.
It’s a good taste!
