- Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas 6. Place the chicory in an ovenproof dish. Mix together the orange rind and juice, oil and thyme. Drizzle over the chicory then season with plenty of black pepper.
- Cook for 25-30 minutes until tender and beginning to char. Toss together with the orange segments and serve drizzled with any cooking liquid and the orange zest. Cool a little or chill before serving.
- Chicory has a slightly bitter flavour which complements the sweetness of the orange.
- Look out for red chicory which has a similar flavour with a great colour.
