YUMMYYYYYY

I am Italian and I couldnt find this in the UK, until I found it on Ocado! so glad! it is simply delicious ! I dont know if you know how to cook it properly....so I can help you to make a proper Italian recipe! first of all cut all the white part of the cicory and throw it away. Then wash the rest with water at least two times. Then take two or three garlic slices and cut them in half. Boil the cicory in salted boiling water for about 10 minutes or till the stems are very soft. Then drain them and when cold squeeze them to remove the water.This is very important!!!! In a pan put some olive oil and the garlic and cook for a few minutes. Then add the drained cicory, add some salt and pepper and cook for about 5/7 minutes stirring often. Remove the garlic slices and enjoy!

Where is the flavour?

Love trying new veg. Followed the instructions-threw away the leaves (composted), finely sliced the flower heads, soaked in cold water for an hour, boiled for 3 mins, sauted briefly with garlic. No bitterness but no taste either! What am I missing?

slimy & too many rotten leaves

Got this in a flash sale & was excited to try another exciting green from Natoora. But it all went in the bin (and there was so much it filled up my food waste canister). Wet & slimy with lots of brown bits and a slug of sorts clinging in the middle. Not nice!

nice but vast amount

Lovely bitter greens for salad, but enough for 4/5 large salads! (To share). Couldnt use it all before it went slimy - after 3 days.

Amazing!

They are as good as the ones I buy in Italy. We love to eat them with some olive oil and salt. Recommended *****
