What is endive?

Endive is sometimes called chicory, or in French it’s chicorée frisée. 

I love to pick up a 3-pack at Trader Joe’s but you can buy it almost anywhere. Just break off the leaves for the perfect appetizer bite.

Of course, stuff them with your favorite ingredients.

Honey is always delicious drizzled on top!

Hospitality inspiration

If you want a few words of inspiration I’ve shared a little bit over at Simple Mom’s about encouragement and hospitality!

Three of my favorite things …

Food + Love + Positive words = Encouragement

I love to encourage others to be hospitable. Because we all know that hospitality is what makes the world go around. People all over the world practice hospitality and it has to do with connecting and feeling loved. Feeling welcome and encouraged!

I think about the last time we’ve opened our homes, inviting friends, family, neighbors, single friends, new friends, friends that want to connect with others, older and younger friends – all types of friends, in for a meal. For some of us, it’s been a long time.

Simple Endive with Strawberry Mint Honey Recipe

We love to come together out by the fire over some tasty wine and an array of healthy appetizers before dinner. Or, skip the dinner and just enjoy appetizers!
You can’t go wrong with a yummy endive nosh. I have a few recipes on my blog like Stuffed Endive with Walnuts and Honey or Black Bean Salad Stuffed Endive (fun for a Mexican feast) or BLT Endive Bites [Real Housemoms] or Smokey Almond Cream Cheese Endive Bites [The Food Charlatan].

Make dairy-free by leaving off the goat cheese.

Ingredients:

  • Endive ribs
  • Goat cheese
  • Fresh strawberries, chopped
  • Fresh mint, finely chopped
  • Honey
  • Lemon Zest and Pepper to garnish

Directions:

  1. Lay the ribs of endive on a platter and sprinkle strawberry pieces inside
  2. On top, sprinkle crumbled goat cheese and mint.
  3. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle on lemon zest and honey.
