Easy, healthy and tasty.
I haven’t eaten Endives in a good while. I wanted something different to the classic Endives with Roquefort. This came up. And it was good.
- 4 Endives.
- 250ml Fresh Cream.
- 2 Thick Slices of Iberico Ham.
- 1 Small Onion.
- Parmesan Cheese.
- Whole Nutmeg.
- Black Pepper.
- Thyme and Oregano.
- Olive Oil.
Wash the endives and remove the outer leave. Finely chop the onion. Cut the Iberico Ham in stripes.
Put a pot with water and salt. Bring to boil. Put the endives and boil for 7 minutes. Drain and let them cool down.
In a pan with a bit of olive oil, slowly fry the finely chopped onion until soft. Add the cream, a touch of ground nutmeg and black pepper. Let it reduce for 10-15 minutes at low heat. Stir occasionally. Add grated Parmesan and mix well. Season.
Pre heat the oven at 240 degrees.
Cut the endives in halves. Put them in a baking tray. Cover them with the Parmesan cream. Add the Iberico ham stripes on top. Add a few drops of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Top up with some grated Parmesan. Sprinkle some Oregano and Thyme.
Put on the oven top rack until golden.
