Ingredients

2 Belgian endive (Witloof), cut into 1.5-2 cm slices 300 g
70 g Gorgonzola cheese
1 tsp balsamic vinegar 5 mL

Method

  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Prepare the Belgian endives: slice them lengthwise into 1,5-2 cm thick slices. Put them in an ovenproof dish under the broiler, 12 cm from the heat. Grill for about 4-5 min, paying attention not to let them burn.
  3. Take the dish out of the oven and spread the cheese over the slices. Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar. Grill an additional 4-5 min, until the cheese has melted completely and is lightly browned. It is not necessary to add any salt, since the cheese is already rather salty. Serve.
