This is good, fast, simple and cheap to make, like an onion soup, but you subtitute the onions by endives. Hope you will enjoy it!
- 4 heads endives
- 2 slices of toasted crusty bread
- 3⁄4 cup shredded gruyere cheese
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 cups beef broth
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- With a knife take out the bottom center part of the endives, it is to take out the bitterness.
- Cut the endives lenghtwise in half an inch wide.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the endives, cook over high heat, stirring.
- When they are colored, add the broth, and let simmer 15 minutes.
- After 15 minutes add pepper and nutmeg.
- In onion soup bowls put 2 tbsp of grated cheese, pour in the soup, add 1 slice of toasted bread and top with the rest of the cheese.
- Put in oven under grill to crust the cheese, and enjoy.
This is perhaps the best soup I have ever had! I can't say enough good things about it. Very simple to make. The only modification I made was that I cut the endive into smaller pieces. I would highly recommend this recipe!
