Grilled Endive with Cumin & Lavendar Oil
I paired it with some grilled endive - and let the few drops I applied do the talking.
3 heads of Endive/Chicory
a drizzle of olive oil
Salt and Pepper
3 drops of cumin oil per piece of endive
3/4 teaspoon of dark brown sugar
Lay the head of endive on your grill pan - drizzle with olive oil, add the drop of cumin oil and season well. Sprinkle over a little sugar. Pop under a hot grill for 10 minutes, turning once, the heads should be a rich caremlised brown on the edges, soft through witha little bit left in the centre.
I served these with some leek and bread pudding, and topped with a poached egg - delicious! There was a camera emergency while I was trying to cook this causing me to over cook the egg - damn - was still good though. Recipe for leek bread pudding to follow - now I'm going to bed!
