Witlof braised in white wine for 4 person

This crunchy relative of radicchio is much more than a salad green. Braised until tender, it’s also sensational as a side dish for roast meats.

Ingredients for Witlof braised in white wine

Witlof braised in white wine, How to Make

  • Step 1
    Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir-fry until aromatic. Add the witlof, cut-side down. Cook, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes or until browned.
  • Step 2
    Add the wine and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 6-8 minutes or until tender.
  • Step 3
    Transfer the witlof to a serving dish. Pour over the wine mixture and sprinkle with parsley to serve.

Notes:

Witlof know-how: Exposure to light turns witlof green and bitter, so store it in a brown paper bag in the crisper.

It tastes great with butter, onions, pears, lemons, mustard, anchovies, rocket and parmesan.

Witlof contains vitamin C, dietary fibre and some folate.

Preparing witlof: Pull off any discoloured leaves and trim the root end. Don’t wash, just wipe with damp paper towel.

More ideas: Stir-fry pork mince with hoisin sauce and bean sprouts. Divide among witlof leaves. Top with fresh coriander leaves. Serve as a starter.

For a salad, toss witlof leaves with coarsely shredded roast chicken, sliced apple and mayonnaise.

Pan-fry uncrumbed veal schnitzel for 1-2 minutes each side. Serve with mash and the braised witlof.

Serves 4 as an accompaniment.
