This red leafy vegetable, which is slightly bitter and just right crispy, is deserving of your attention.
Radicchio, while having the appearance of a little red cabbage, is a member of the chicory family. This tiny, colourful vegetable has a chewy texture and a mildly bitter flavour that packs a powerful flavour punch. Any meal that uses radicchio benefits greatly from its deep red hue.
Sliced thinly and eaten fresh in salads, grilled in wedges, or cooked in hot meals like soups, risotto, and pasta, radicchio is also available. Additionally, it may be sliced and put on pizza. Radicchio's bitter taste can be lessened or enhanced by combining it with sweet or acidic components.
Radicchio is popular in Italy, and when grilled, the purple leaves become lightly crisp and smoky-tasting. To keep the radicchio from falling apart on the grill, we cut it through the core into thick wedges. While we wanted char on our radicchio leaves, we didn't want to burn them; brushing them with a liberal amount of olive oil added flavor and richness and prevented burning.
