The perfect Christmas gift for you or a loved one
Up to 2 hrs ahead, separate the chicory into boat-shaped leaves and trim the ends so that they are all roughly the same size. You will probably get about eight or nine decent-sized leaves from each head of chicory. As the leaves get closer to the heart of the chicory, they will be too small to use for canapés, so save them to add to wintry salads.
Peel the carrot, then keep peeling off strips until you have as many as the number of chicory leaves.
Drop spoonfuls of hummus onto the chicory, then add a carrot curl and an olive to each. They’ll keep in the fridge for about 2 hours.
