This caramelised chicory packs a flavour punch, roasted with a good hit of garlic and a sweet orange, honey and thyme sauce. Also known as endive, chicory has crisp, tightly packed leaves and a delicate, slightly bitter flavour that works a treat in this side dish. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Grease a roasting tin, halve the chicory, or leave whole if small, and arrange side by side in the dish. Tuck the garlic among the chicory, season with black pepper and top with the thyme sprigs.
  2. Mix 1 tbsp orange juice with the honey and vinegar, then drizzle over the chicory. Dot with the butter then bake in the oven, uncovered, for 1 hour, turning the chicory 2 or 3 times, until tender when pierced with a knife. Add the orange zest for the last 10-15 minutes of cooking.
