  1. Love endives, both David & I do. Used to serve it with a touch of light mustard vinagrette, but after reading the blog I rand what Foodie Guru said about mustard will change. I wonder what he has to say about vinegars. I am thinking of trying with a touch of olive oil, sea salt & cayenne. Hummus! will give it a try.

  2. Hi!  I am enjoying these foodie guru posts, thank you. I am curious where the “buy here now” links come from and who gets the money, when things are purchased.I am trying to decide whether to buy through these links or look for the products on my own. Thank you, Valerie Keartesvaleriekeartes@sbcglobal.net

  3. Loved it with my pasta. Made a simple penne pasta with vegetables (Brussel sprouts, endive, asparagus, capsicum) in high heat and still a bit crunchy with crushed red pepper and Italian seasoning 🙂
    That’s my lunch today!
