So, what is achicoria?

Achicoria, also known as chicory, is a versatile ingredient that adds a subtle bitterness to a wide range of dishes. The plant's leaves can be used raw in salads or cooked as a side dish, while its root can be roasted and ground to make a caffeine-free coffee substitute. With its high fiber content and low calorie count, achicoria is also a nutritious addition to any diet. Additionally, it contains inulin, a prebiotic fiber that helps promote healthy gut bacteria and may offer other health benefits such as improved blood sugar control and reduced inflammation.
