Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Toss the chicory in the lemon juice until completely coated. Heat a griddle until very hot, then griddle the chicory, cut-side down first, turning them halfway through to get nice criss-cross lines. Flip over and griddle briefly on the rounded side. Tip straight into a bowl and toss with 1 tbsp of the olive oil.

  • STEP 2

    To serve, balance the chicory on top of each other, then place 2 fig halves next to it. Dress the other leaves in the balsamic vinegar and remaining olive oil, then scatter around the plate with the Parmesan and serve.
