Happy Wednesday everyone! I’ve got a smashing lunch recipe for you today. This dish has been a staple of mine for more than 20 years and I’m still not tired of it. It’s very simple, very quick and very delicious. You just saute a little minced onion in butter, then add radicchio, a bit of cream and some chicken bouillon and serve over rice. The cooking gets rid of almost all the bitterness that makes radicchio inedible unpleasant when it’s raw and turns it into a quite delicious vegetable. Hope you give it a try. :)
