Grilled Organic Endive Back to Basics utilizes the amazing flavor of beautifully grown endive adding a nice char from grilling and finishing with nice notes of extra virgin olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon zested fleur de sel and Mizuna greens giving us a wonderful spring side dish that is simple and purely delicious!


  • 12 endive
  • 3 tablespoons evo oil
  • lemon zested fleur de sel
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup Mizuna greens


  1. Wash and dry endive.
  2. Cut into quarters and place in a bowl. Drizzle in 1/2 the olive oil and season with just a touch of salt and pepper.
  3. Take a cast iron grilling pan and bring to a med to high heat. Place endive into the pan and cook till nice grilling marks appear on the surface, about 4 minutes. Turn and do the same fo the other side. Continue until all the endive is grilled.
  4. Place endive into a serving dish. Grate lemon zest over top and drizzle remainder of the e.v.o. oil.
  5. Finish with a nice dusting of fleur de sel and a sprinkling of the Mizuna greens. Squeeze some lemon juice over top, and it is ready to serve.
  6. Enjoy!


  1. If you do not have the grilling pan you can do them on the BBQ. Make sure to oil the grill so they do not stick. If you have a vegetable tray for the BBQ better yet, but again oil it a bit.
  2. If you cannot find Mizuna greens use one of your favorite microgreens.
