Glazed chicory with orange

Side Serves 4 25 min
This recipe for chicory cooked with orange juice and a little sugar is a perfect foil to the gaminess of duck or pheasant. It also goes well with grilled fish or scallops. It's healthy and easy to prepare.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 heads of chicory, thinly sliced
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 200ml white wine
  • grated zest and juice of 2 oranges
  • a sprig of thyme
  • salt and pepper

Method

Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 20 min
  • Step 1

    Melt the butter in a large pan, add the onion and garlic and cook over a medium heat for a few minutes, until softened but not coloured.
  • Step 2

    Add the chicory, sugar, wine, orange juice and zest and thyme and bring to the boil.
  • Step 3

    Lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the liquid has caramelised slightly and reduced enough to coat the chicory in a light glaze. Season well and serve.
