Submitted by: Jessica Cunha
Original Recipe Found Here: Grow, Eat, Cook by Willi Galloway

Serves 4 as a side-dish


  • 2 large (or 3 small) radicchio heads
  • 1 Tbs rice vinegar
  • zest and juice of 1 small lime
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 1 tsp finely minced garlic
  • 1 tsp peeled and finely minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 3 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Quarter the radicchio length-wise, leaving the core intact.  In a medium bowl, wisk together all the remaining ingredients, except the salt and pepper.  Pour into a shallow dish and add the ridicchio, turning several times to coat.  Cover and refridgerate overnight.

Bring a grill to medium-high heat.  Remove the radicchio from the marinate and place direcly on the grill, discarding the remaining marinade.  Cook, turning the radicchio occasionally, until it just begins to wilt and is charred in spots, about 6 minutes total.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve warm.
