Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat a griddle pan over a high heat until nearly smoking. Rub the chicory and radicchio quarters with the olive oil and season. In batches, griddle on all sides until tender and the leaves have slightly blackened. Drizzle over the saba or balsamic vinegar to serve.

RECIPE TIPS
SABA

Saba, also known as vin cotto and mosto cotto, is made from whole pressed grape juice (or grape must) that has been cooked over a very low temperature to produce a sweet syrup. Used in both desserts and savoury sauces, saba is sold in Italian delicatessens and also at melburyandappleton.co.uk.

RADICCHIO ROSSO DI TREVISO

Radicchio rosso di Treviso is a long, thin, mild-flavoured variety of radicchio. Its peppery flavour becomes less pronounced when it’s griddled. You’ll find it in specialist greengrocers.
