  3. Stir and continue to fry on lower heat until the endive is soft and browned.

    I LOVE endives! But I usually boil them, and then cook them in the oven, with some mozzarella melted on top. I think this may work for this recipe as well...

    I never tried to cut them this way, so I'll give it a try.

    OMG! Caramelized endive over arugula with toasted walnuts, chicken, and a sprinkling of parmesan? Delicious!
