Party Pleaser: Endives

At just one calorie per leaf endives pack a bunch of vitamins, minerals and crunch.  I absolutely love endives because they make a great replacement for chips and crackers.  Do you guys remember when Tostitos came out with scoops (yes- I’m a 90’s child – and yes, it was a genius invention back then).  Well – Endives are basically the perfect alternative to those scoops.  You can literally stuff these chicory family leafs with hummus, guacamole or any of your favorite dips- and enjoy it without worrying about the extra basically empty calories in chips/crackers.
