Chicory owes its special taste to the bitter substances it contains in abundance. They stimulate the work of the liver and bile and thus promote digestion. Olive oil contributes to the defence against disturbances here, as it supplies plenty of monounsaturated fatty acids, which have a positive effect on the amount of "good" HDL cholesterol in the blood.

You don't care about the bitter taste of chicory? Take Savoy cabbage or brussels sprouts instead - then even children will prefer to help themselves. By the way, the rest of the brew is easy to store and use for other dishes.
