Grilled Chicory


  • Chicory heads, sliced in half lengthwise
  • Tuscan kale
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 TBSP balsamic glaze (Trader Joe’s has a great one!)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat BBQ grill (or griddle) to high heat
  2. Cut chicory in half (or quarters), lengthwise. Break kale into individual leaves
  3. Whisk olive oil with garlic. Use a brush to lightly coat or drizzle garlic oil over the greens.
  4. Place greens on the grill. Turning all the pieces every few minutes and remove once the edges are charred (per your grilling preference).
  5. Note: We added our greens to the grill during the last 10 minutes of grilling our proteins for dinner.
