Endive Cups with Ricotta
This is a nice easy recipe that again looks like you've spent hours. Do the extra and make the homemade ricotta - or at least buy some good quality ricotta. It is worth it.
Endive Cups with Ricotta (Adapted from Real Simple)
1-2 endive, ends trimmed and separated
1/2 c pistachio nuts
1/2 c golden raisins
3 T olive oil
1 1/2 c ricotta (homemade)
2 T fresh chives, chopped
In a small bowl combine pistachio, raisins, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange endive on a platter, dollop some ricotta, and then top with pistachio mixture.
You do need to go the extra on this and get the golden raisins - regular raisins just won't do it. A drizzle of honey wouldn't be too off the mark here either. The original recipe used almonds but I think the pistachio makes a better choice.
