  • Make 2 or 3 deep cuts in the base of the chicory heads. With the cut side down, place under a hot grill for 5 minutes until just beginning to blacken.

  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a small saucepan. Add the garlic and gently fry for 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes and marjoram.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then pour the mixture over the chicory.
