The local markets this week just started selling something called "Endivien" which doesn't quite look like the escarole that I used to buy in the states, but neither does it look like curly Endive. Is it a third plant? Or just a different variety of escarole?
The guy at the farmstand says they just eat it like salad, but I want to cook with it like I would with escarole. I guess I can always just try, but I'm wondering if I'm going to waste a lovely large head of lettuce!
This is what what I bought looks like: endivien
And this is what I think of escarole as looking like: escarole
And what curly endive looks like: curly endive
