Roman Style Sauteed Catalonia Chicory with Garlic and Hot Peppers – Puntarelle Ripassate in Padella

In the Lazio region the tender and crunchy inner heart of sprouted chicory is named Puntarelle. They are one of the greatest pleasure of Roman cuisine in springtime.

The bitter taste of the outer leaves and the crunchy consistency of the inner sprouts make the Catalonia chicory well suitable both for making Puntarelle salads and for the saute’ version.

The recipe we are presenting here is a typical rustic side dish of Roman Cuisine made either with Catalonia chicory head or with the intense green and outer leaves of sprouted chicory head.

Agretti Savoury Pie

A few days ago, while I was shopping at my favourite grocery store in Switzerland, I saw a packet of vegetables I had never seen. Once I read the name on the label (agretti, monk’s beard, mönksbart) I realised those were the vegetables I’ve been hearing everyone talking about lately. These green shoots grow in Italy, from Central Italy to the South, but I have to admit that they are not so common in the area where I’m from (North-east of Italy). So I didn’t pass up the chance to buy them and to prepare this savoury cake, after consulting Marinella who is the expert when it comes to Southern Italian recipes. Hope you find the Agretti at your local market ’cause they are really delicious and especially super healthy!
