Endive with Blue Cheese, Walnuts and Organic Olive Oil Recipe


-2 tablespoons Sonoma Farm Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-1 tablespoon unsalted butter
-24 walnuts halves
-1 tablespoon granulated sugar
-1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
-1 tablespoon maple syrup
-6 fresh figs
-Freshly ground black pepper
-3 heads Belgian endive
-1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese.


Heat the oven to 400°F. Melt butter in a medium sauté pan over medium heat until foaming. Add pecans, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Cook, stirring often, until sugars dissolve and mixture bubbles. Turn mixture onto a piece of aluminum foil or waxed paper, set in a dry place, and let cool. Quarter figs lengthwise, toss in olive oil, season with salt and pepper, place on a baking sheet, and roast in the oven until just soft, about 10 minutes. Trim off the bottoms of the endive and separate the heads into leaves. Choose the best 24 leaves (do not use the hearts). Place 1 fig quarter and 1 teaspoon of the blue cheese on each leaf. Top with a pecan and serve.
