Super Simple and Scrumptious Radicchio with Basalmic and Parmesan (from


2 large heads radicchio, about 8 oz each
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
4 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 – 2 oz piece of pecorino or Parmesan cheese

Seared radicchio with balsamic and Parmesan

1) Cut each radicchio through the core into 4 even wedges. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Place the radicchio, cut-side down in the skillet and season with salt and pepper.

2) Sear the radicchio until the bottoms brown and wilt slightly, about 3 minutes. Turn the wedges over and sear the other side, about 2 minutes more. Transfer the radicchio to a plate.

3) Add the balsamic vinegar to the pan and boil until syrupy and reduced by about half, about 1 minute. Return the radicchio to the pan and toss to glaze with the balsamic syrup. Season with salt and pepper.

4) Divide the radicchio among 4 plates. Using a vegetable peeler, shave large pieces of cheese over the top. Serve warm.
