I don’t know about you, but I did not grow up eating Belgian endives. They just weren’t something my parents used to cook with, so I wasn’t familiar and to be completely honest, I hadn’t even heard of them! Until I started dating Alessandro that is and he introduced me- now I buy and eat them weekly. They are crispy and so delicious. You can add them to salads or even roast them.

Our favorite way to eat Belgian endives is with arugula for a simple weeknight salad that comes together in just about 5 minutes! We make this all the time because it’s easy, pairs well with everything, and hits the spot every time.

I’ve been loving using these Dexas Spoon and Strain Tongs for so many things lately. They have a really nifty gravity open and close mechanism where they open when pointed down and close when pointed up. I find it super useful when quickly moving and grooving around the kitchen.

Especially when I’m pan searing vegetables or meat, and don’t have another hand to pull down the lever that is typically there.

These Spoon and Strain Tongs are also just a great size and make them easy to grab for salads (seen here), sautéing vegetables, and so much more. I love the versatile design where one side is designed to spoon and the other to strain. I would highly recommend!
