Taste and use of endive green microgreens
Its leaves are edible, and when eaten raw, green escarole microgreens are ideal for the size and freshness on hand. Excellent for a quick lunch, a sandwich prepared on the fly, where a few endive leaves would make it fresher and tastier and would also give it a pleasant crunchiness. Also ideal to add to mixed salads, its bitter taste gives a stronger flavor to a dish with poor flavour. The cooked leaves, however, are much appreciated with black olives and anchovies, or in minestrone together with other vegetables.
