My “dieting buddy” contributed this one. The endives will taste braised, even though they’re not made with oil. Try this same recipe with almost any low-carb vegetable and keep it on hand for a great, “free” snack! Can be eaten warm or at room temperature.


  • 4 medium endives, washed and trimmed
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth, or 1 tablespoon chicken soup powder mixed with 1/2 cup boiling water)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • non-stick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange endives in glass baking dish and pour broth and lemon juice on top. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Cover and bake for about 30 minutes, until fork-tender. Remove from oven and cool. Cut endives into quarters and rearrange in the same dish. Sprinkle with the rest of the ingredients. Broil for a few minutes, until they start to brown. Enjoy!
