Endive is well-known by most gardeners who grow their own vegetables. This very tender and delicious vegetable is versatile and easy to grow. You can sow it indoors, outdoors and in square metre gardens. Use endive in salads, stir-fries, stews and mashed potato stews. Combine the slightly bitter flavour of endive with cheese, bacon, potatoes, lettuce, fish, meat and sweet vegetables like carrot, tomato and bell pepper.
