Here’s a quick spring recipe I threw together the other night. You can serve it as a starter or side dish. This baby chicorée (see the photo) might not be available in the States. You can replace it with other types of chicory. It’s not quite as bitter as radicchio, so if using baby green radicchio leaves mix them with some escarole salad, or replace the radicchio with dandelion leaves…

Sautéd Chicorée with Blood Orange and Fresh Goat Cheese 

4 generous handfuls chicorée (or equal amount of other types of chicory)
2 large garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
8 slices blood orange, halved
4 wedges fresh goat cheese
Extra virgin olive oil
Unrefined sea salt and freshly ground pepper 

Sauté the garlic in a bit of olive oil until just beginning to take on color. Add the chicorée (chopped coarsely if desired) and sauté until wilted. Season with unrefined sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Arrange on 4 plates, along with the blood orange slices and goat cheese. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over the goat cheese and give a good turn of the pepper mill. Serve and enjoy.
