This Italian-style soup uses the lettuce-like frizzy curly endive that's available from August through March. It is perfect for a cold winter's night. Serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

1 person made this

IngredientsServes: 4

  • 1 large head of curly endive
  • 1.5L vegetable stock
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 small carrot, finely chopped
  • 160g short grain rice
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste

MethodPrep:20min ›Cook:40min ›Ready in:1hr

  1. Wash and slice the curly endive. Soak in water until ready to use. Warm the stock in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Heat 4 tablespoons oil in a saucepan over medium heat; add garlic, celery and carrot. Cook and stir for a few minutes, until vegetables begin to soften.
  3. Add the curly endive, scooping it up directly from the water so some water is included. Season with salt; cover and cook over medium heat until the curly endive is completed wilted. Add half of the stock and continue to simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Pour in remaining stock and rice; bring to the boil and cook rice for 12 to 15 minutes, or until al dente (with a bite).
  5. Season to taste; divide into 4 bowls and drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on top. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.


Make the soup ahead of time; let stand for half an hour, so the curly endive has time to release more flavour. Or prepare the soup a day in advance and gently reheat before serving.

Curly Endive (aka Chicory) with Spaghetti

This is a great budget-saving, delicious dinner, if you like greens. If you have a little white wine lying around you can toss half wine and half pasta water at the end!


  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Large Onion
  • 1 head (Medium To Large) Garlic
  • 1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes (or To Taste)
  • 1 whole Large Head Curly Endive Also Known As Chicory

  • 1 pound Spaghetti Cooked To Al Dente, Drained
  • 1 whole Lemon, Squeezed
  • ½ teaspoons Salt And Pepper, Or To Taste
  • ½ cups Parmigiano Reggiano Plus More For Top Of Plate


Heat oil over medium-high heat and add onion. Saute until onion starts to become brown. Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook until garlic is soft and fragrant.

Add curly endive and the reserved pasta water, combine. Cook until curly endive is cooked down but not soggy. Add cooked pasta, fresh squeezed lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, and parmigiano reggiano. Toss to combine.

Italian Wedding Soup

Full of flavor and so fast and easy to make, it could easily be a weeknight meal. The meatballs cook in the broth and are so delicious and tender! Italian wedding soup is actually Italian-American, the name for which is apparently a loose translation of the Italian minestra maritata, which means “married soup.” It describes the combination or “marriage” of a green vegetable and a broth.


  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef (at Least 93%)
  • ⅓ cups Finely Chopped Onion
  • 1 clove Garlic (large), Diced
  • ⅓ cups Italian Or Regular Bread Crumbs
  • ⅓ cups Fresh Parsley, Chopped
  • 1 Egg, Beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Dry Oregano
  • ⅓ cups Grated Parmesan And Pecorino Romano Mix
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Chopped Onion
  • 1 clove Garlic (large), Diced
  • 10 cups Low-sodium Chicken Broth Or Stock
  • ½ cups Dry White Wine (optional)
  • 1 cup Orzo
  • ¼ cups Fresh Dill, Chopped
  • 1 head Endive, Cut Into 1 1/2 Inch Lengths
  • Salt And Pepper


Mix meatball ingredients together in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Shape into approximately 25 small meatballs, placing them on a sheet pan and setting aside until later.

Heat a soup pot to medium high. Add olive oil, onion, and garlic. Sauté until translucent. Add chicken broth and wine. Salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil.

Add the orzo to the boiling broth. Then drop all the raw meatballs gently into the pot. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer until orzo is fully cooked, about 10 minutes.

Recipe Summary

  • 4 cups 1/2-inch cubes good-quality white bread
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • Fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
  • 2 small heads curly endive (about 1 1/2 pounds in all), torn into bite-size pieces (about 5 quarts)
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon red- or white-wine vinegar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Put a large frying pan over moderate heat. Toss the bread cubes with 2 tablespoons of the oil and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Put them in the pan and cook, stirring frequently, until crisp and brown, about 5 minutes. Remove the croutons from the pan.

Add the bacon to the pan and cook until crisp. Remove and drain. Put in a large glass or stainless-steel bowl with the endive. Pour off all but 1/4 cup of the fat from the pan.

Fill a saucepan two-thirds full with water. Add the 1 teaspoon vinegar and bring to a boil. Break each egg into a cup or small bowl and slide one at a time into the water. Reduce the heat to a bare simmer. Poach the eggs until the whites are set but the yolks are still soft, about 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

To the fat in the pan, add the remaining 4 tablespoons oil, the garlic, thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Warm the dressing over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the garlic barely starts to brown, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons vinegar and remove from the heat. Toss the dressing with the endive and bacon until the endive wilts slightly. Add the croutons and toss again. Put on plates. Top each salad with a warm egg.

Put a large, heavy frying pan, sauté pan, or pot over medium-low heat. Whatever vessel you choose should have a tight-fitting lid. When the pan is hot, add the butter.

While the butter melts, trim off and discard any browned bits from the ends of the endives and any bruised or browning exterior leaves.

When the butter is melted, lay the endives in a single layer in the pan. Sprinkle them with the lemon juice and salt.

Pour the water down along the side of the pan (you don't want to wash off the salt you've just sprinkled on).

If you want to cut the bitterness in the final dish even further than the braising will do alone, sprinkle the endives with the sugar.

Cover the pan. You want a nice, tight fit with the lid. If steam is escaping, lay a piece of foil over the pan and then put on the lid. Or, cut a piece of parchment paper to fit in the pan directly over the endives and then cover the pan (feel free to do this even with a tight-fitting lid it helps the endives brown evenly).

Method 1: Reduce the heat to low. Let the endives cook, undisturbed, until they are very tender, about 30 minutes.

Method 2: If your stove is uneven or you need the burner space for the rest of the meal, you can put the pan in a 375 F oven (as long as it's oven-safe) at this point and let them cook in there for 30 to 40 minutes instead of on the stove. (This method is also more likely to result in more evenly browned endives.​)

When the endives are very tender, remove the lid (and the foil or parchment paper, if you used it), return the pan to the stove if it's been in the oven, and cook over medium heat until any liquid in the pan evaporates and the endives start to brown, if necessary.

Turn the endives over and cook them until they are browned all over. (Note that if you added sugar in Step 6, you'll need to watch them quite carefully at this point, since the added sugar will make them brown more quickly.)

Chicory Recipes

André Baranowski

Members of the chicory family such as endive, escarole, radicchio, and frisée are great for adding a pleasant, slightly bitter freshness to all sorts of dishes. The greens are a little strong on their own, but wonderful team players. From pasta to deviled eggs to—especially—crunchy salads, we’ve rounded up our favorite chicory recipes.

Bitter, red radicchio is a great ingredient in arugula salads, complementing the pepperiness and adding a pop of color. Try mixing arugula and radicchio with fennel, walnuts, and parmesan cheese and dressing it simply with lemon juice and olive oil. Our tricolore salad also features arugula, radicchio, and fennel, this time with pecorino cheese and a grapefruit-saba vinaigrette.

Crisp and nutty, endive is another delicious member of the chicory family. Use it in a salad with Comte cheese, chopped walnuts, and a sherry vinaigrette. Endive also holds up well to cooking—try steaming it, grilling it, and making it into a salad with a sweet bee pollen vinaigrette.

We like mixing greens into pasta to add a light freshness. Red endive and radicchio are both great in dish of spaghettini with carrots, olives, and arugula. Sweet Italian sausage, arugula, and bell pepper make for an easy pasta salad, with radicchio rounding things out.

Find all of these dishes and more in our collection of chicory recipes.

Curly Endive Lettuce Salad with Bacon and Poached Egg

France. Never been there. I’m not crazy about flying. I have heard that it is a cool place to visit. Three of our kids have been there. MaryJo finally got there last year. Google maps street view is about as close as I’ll ever get. I can imagine a French bistro, a small cafe, possibly with outdoor, streetside seating, where you could go have lunch, have a glass of wine, and order Salade Frisee. Or in our case, curly endive lettuce salad.

Typically, it would be a plate with a handful of lettuce, drizzled with a vinaigrette, possibly a balsamic vinaigrette, with crunchy, handmade croutons, bacon, a soft-boiled or poached egg, finished off with shaved gruyere cheese. Sounds simply wonderful.

This salad is one that my daughter Josie makes, since she grows curly endive lettuce

and has chickens for eggs. And she has also spent the most time in France, so she’s seen this before. Backpacking through France for a month, staying in Paris for a semester of school, and various other trips.

For this salad, I mixed up a simple vinaigrette of olive oil, red wine vinegar, chopped fresh oregano, and salt and pepper. I browned up a strip of thick cut bacon, sliced some grape tomatoes, and added some crumbled feta cheese. Then just poached an egg for 3 minutes and plopped it on the top. The slightly bitter taste of the lettuce pairs well with the savory flavors of the bacon and egg.

Try this salad for breakfast or lunch and pretend you’re sitting in a cafe in the French countryside.

Italian Wedding Soup

35 Serves 8

Originally seen on Everyday Italian. Episode: Viewer Requests.

To make the meatballs: Stir the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the cheese, beef and pork. Using 1 1/2 teaspoons for each, shape the meat mixture into 1-inch-diameter meatballs. Place on a baking sheet.

To make the soup: Bring the broth to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and curly endive and simmer until the meatballs are cooked through and the curly endive is tender, about 8 minutes. Whisk the eggs and cheese in a medium bowl to blend. Stir the soup in a circular motion. Gradually drizzle the egg mixture into the moving broth, stirring gently with a fork to form thin stands of egg, about 1 minute. Season the soup to taste with salt and pepper.

Ladle the soup into bowls and serve. Finish soup with parmesan cheese if desired.
