Our goal for this summer is to eat more vegetables than ever and try to rediscover plants that we are not used to finding in supermarkets anymore, but used to be super popular for our grandparents.

The Mediterranean Diet is full of options but sometimes we forget how tasty even the most plain vegetables can be when cooked following the right recipe!

For today’s recipe, I am using Chicory - Cicoria in Italian. This tasty plant is often used as a forage crop and can be found as a wild plant in Italy and all over Europe, North America, China, and Australia.

Collecting and cleaning Chicory is not easy if you are not used to it, but the taste is absolutely worth it! Let’s make Gratin Chicory!
