This takes less than 10 minutes to prep and about 25 minutes to roast. I love how the maple syrup balances the bitterness of the endive.
6 medium-sized endive
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons real maple syrup
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Halve the endives or if large, cut them lengthwise into four wedges then remove as much of the core as possible (the core can be bitter). Arrange endive into one layer on a baking sheet.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter the stir in maple syrup, thyme and salt. When hot, pour over the endive and bake until tender and the edges begin to brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
