Red Chicory resembles a petite head of red cabbage. Growing from orange to grapefruit size and easy to peel, the smooth, crisp leaves offer a bitter flavor with a hint of spice. When cooked the vibrant burgundy color of the leaves fades to a deep brown hue, its bitter flavor is mellowed and rather takes on a subtle sweetness.
Cooking Red Chicory brings out the vegetable's natural sweetness but it can also be served fresh. It can be chopped and sautéed or halved and grilled. Fresh leaves are sturdy enough to be used whole as a cup or wrap. In Italy Red Chicory is classically added to risottos and tomato sauces or simply grilled and dressed in olive oil.
