The original recipe calls for the endive so that is what I posted but I have used broccoli, escarole, radicchio, broccoli rabe and fennel with wonderful results. I have found that some veggies like the broccoli and fennel benifit from being blanched for a few minutes b4 using in this dish. Most softer veggies and greens do not need this pre-treatment. Use your best judgment.
