How to cook radicchio in a pan

  1. First of all, heat the extra virgin olive oil in a pan and in the meantime dedicate yourself to cleaning: slice the onion thinly, get a clove of garlic and then pass on to the radicchio.
  2. First wash it under running water and then roughly cut it into strips, eliminating the white and hard parts , which are also the most bitter and unpleasant in the mouth.
  3. At this point, the steps are few and simple: brown the garlic with the onion in the hot oil, add the radicchio and season with salt and pepper. Saute until the leaves are wilted, about 5 minutes (also depends on the size of the pan and the amount of radicchio).
  4. Once ready, serve it by combining it with what you like best. Your pan-fried red radicchio is ready, enjoy your meal!
