Don’t know how to use radicchio? Here are 11 ways to use it in your daily meals.
How often have you been at the farmers market and, unsure of how to pronouce the vegetable you’re looking at, mumbled “I’ll have one of those” under your breath while pointing at the object of your desire? Let’s agree to stop doing that. Head out to the market this weekend and confidently ask for the rah-dee-key-oh.
Radicchio is a type of chicory (as is puntarelle) and, along with artichokes, burdock, and Jerusalem artichokes, a member of the sunflower family. Endive, another member of the family, is especially closely related to chicories (they’re all in the Chichorium genus) and they’re confusingly named depending on where you live in the world — what we think of as endive is known elsewhere as chicory.
