Endive: What’s in a name?

in Endive

It’s day 9 of the 12 Days of Endive!

Day 9, 12 Days of Endive

Whether you call it California endive, Belgian endive, Brussels endive, French endive, endive, or witlof, these names are all synonymous for Cichorium endivia, the vegetable that I’ve been celebrating.  Whatever you call it, endive is rich in vitamins and minerals, especially folate, vitamins A and K, and is also high in fiber. Endive is also low in sodium.  In my mind, with those qualities on hand it is one amazing vegetable, no matter the name.  Though being the California girl that I am, I’m partial to the California variety!

Endive is a favorite of mine… grew up with it and now I seem to be one of my only non-foodie friends that enjoys it.

@Brian @ A Thought For Food, We need to spread the gospel of endive! That or keep it all to ourselves… Oh decisions!!
