Chicory with ‘ham’ in ‘cheesy’ sauce

Van TofuParty dishes


This is a classic Belgian dish.  Which is actually very easy to prepare and to veganize when you have the right ingredients.  In this case it means: vegan ham.  And I was so lucky to find a package from Redwood in a healthfood shop last week.  Usually I find one package every 3 months or so.

Here we go:

Start with steaming your chicory for more or less 15 min.

Wrap each part in a slice of ‘ham’.

Place in an oven dish and pour over some ‘cheesy’ sauce.

I made mine by making a simple bechamel sauce, with soy-milk, and adding some nutritional yeast.  And spicing it up with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Bake in the oven at 200°C.  No more than half an hour.

Even teenage girl liked her chicory a little bit this way.  Usually this is served with some mashed potatoes.


  1. Hallo, Ik vil to leren nederlands…but I’m not doing too well! Sooooooo I’m really excited to find your blog in both ‘engels en nederlands’.
    That chicory looks delicious (I do vegan bechamel *exactly* the same way, gotta have the nutmeg mmmm).
