Finally I found nice recipe and I have tried chicory :) 

// Recipe adapted from here //


  • 2 chicory
  • 2 tsp clarified butter
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • pink salt
  • pinch of brown sugar
  • 2 TBS breadcrumbs
  • 1 TBS nutritional yeast (or 50 g Gruyere or Parmesan cheese)
  • 1/2 TBS ground flaxseeds
  • thyme


Heat the oven to 190C.

Wash and cut chicory in half. Melt butter with olive oil on a frying pan. Add sugar and salt. Then place all halves on the pan cut side down. Fry them until golden brown (about 5 minutes). Transfer to ovenproof dish or deep baking tray, sprinkle with thyme and put into the oven for about 10-12 minutes.

In the meantime, mix breadcrumbs with nutritional yeast (or cheese) in a small bowl. Take out chicory and sprinkle with that mixture. Put again into the oven and bake for another 7 minutes. Chicory should be soft - knife should go easily inside. 

Serve immediately!
