How to remove the bitterness from red radicchio

Before cooking the radicchio in the oven, you can also make sure to soften the bitter taste of this vegetable. To do this, soak the tufts, after washing them thoroughly, in about 1 liter of water mixed with 1 glass of white vinegar and 1 level teaspoon of salt . Leave the vegetable to soak well for at least 30 minutes then rinse everything under cold water, pat it dry and proceed with the preparation.


We recommend keeping the side dish in the fridge for a maximum of 2-3 days after cooking and in a special container with an airtight lid.
