Grilled Endives with Figs
This salad is characterized by a high mineral content of chicory, rocket and figs. The chicory also offers a lot of bitter substances that have a positive effect on the stomach and intestines. The soluble fiber inulin in chicory also has beneficial properties for the intestinal flora.
If the fig season is already over, they can replace it with other fruit such as pears. To make the salad more substantial and filling, you can add feta cheese or some sliced parmesan.
Preheat the broiler.
Rinse and trim the endives, cut in half lengthwise and place the cut side up on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook under the broiler for 5-8 minutes.
Meanwhile, trim the figs and quarter lengthwise.
Rinse and trim the arugula and shake dry.
For the dressing, combine the oil with the vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
Arrange the arugula on a plate and top with fig quarters and 2 endive halves. Drizzle with the dressing and serve showered with flaked almonds.
