Endives with Green Apple & Brie

by Cindy Yanasha Angulo in , , , ,

Pressed for time and guests are on their way?  Have no fear!  Here's a crispy, fresh appetizer or snack that will take less than 10 minutes to make!  I fancied it up by shaping it into a flower for a bright spring look. 

Because of their fresh crunch, endives are a great substitute for crackers and are much healthier.  I used a purple endive for my "spring flower" creation and paired it with brie, green apple, almond slices, honey and cracked black pepper - the combination of flavors is intense & delicious!


Time: Less than 10 mins


  • 1 green apple
  • 1 endive (green or purple, your choice)
  • About 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons almond slices (tip: buy these pre-sliced)
  • 1-2 slices of brie
  • Cracked black pepper (optional)


  1. Wash the endive and pull the leaves off one by one so you can fill them.  Make sure any excess water is wiped off with a paper towel.  I formed mine into a flower shape for a fun, spring look!
  2. Cut the apple into small slices and place them into the endive leaves.
  3. Cut the brie into smaller pieces and add them either on top of or next to the apple pieces.
  4. Sprinkle the almond slices, drizzle the honey, and crack the black pepper over the entire dish. 
  5. Serve as an appetizer or healthy snack - enjoy!
