Broccoli-Endive Boats

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by mersaydees

These canapés are based on a recipe by Margaret Dennis and Karen Gillingham in the Nov/Dec 1992 issue of Cooking Light magazine. Keep in mind that the broccoli mixture marinates in the 'fridge 2 hours before placing in the endive leaves.

Attractive interesting recipe. We enjoyed it very much. I subbed Apple cider vinegar for the red wine and sweet onion for the purple - it was simply supply & demand. The recipe still worked. I marinated the broccoli for 4 hours and the vinegar actually cooked the broccoli so it lost it's lovely vibrant color.
