Orange & Pistachio Endive Boats

"When you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life"
Today’s post is coming to you from 34 000 feet on my way home from a great weekend away visiting amazing friends. 

The weather was absolutely fabulous and we ate almost every meal outside soaking up the gorgeous sun and fresh, early summer air. It always amazes me what sharing a meal really means - it is not only nourishment for your body it is time to laugh, talk, share, try new things and learn more about the people you love.

Today's recipe is perfect for sharing...And perfect for the hot summer weather!  The orange adds a hint of sweetness against the lightly bitter taste of the endive and is a great source of fibre and vitamin C. The pistachios are a good source of protein and iron and the cinnamon and olive oil both provide heart healthy antioxidants. 

This is a great appetizer or shared plate - try it out next time you are sharing a meal and some laughs with friends or family.


2 navel oranges, peeled and cut in small pieces
2 tsp olive oil
2 heads endive, bottom cut off and leaves separated
1/2 cup roasted pistachios
1/2 cup hummus
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Fresh ground sea salt to taste

In a medium mixing bowl, toss the orange pieces and pistachios with olive oil, cinnamon and sea salt. Set aside.

On a platter, arrange the endive leaves and then spread a little hummus on each one.  Top each one with some of the orange pistachio mixture from the first step.  Serve promptly.
