A diffrent Spain
The purpose of this site is
to give some aspects and reflections on Spain
with information which you may not find in regular Travel Booklets.


Sorry, but no updates will be done on this site from now on. I decided to put all my efforts on the Swedish site. You'll find a translation tool on the right hand side, Translate this site / Traducir esta Página (powered by Google) or you can use the links below. You may have a good laugh since the translations sometimes mess it up, but I'm sure you will find a lot more to read this way:

Sorry for any inconvience!

Endives with Roquefort dressingEndives (chicory) with Roquefort dressing

- (Endivias al Roquefort)

Endives goes very well with blue cheese and this tapa is really good tasting.

The dish is easy to prepare and may also be served as a snack with a glass of wine.


Ingredients, serves 4 as a tapa:

  • 1 -2 endives.
  • 4 oz blue cheese, e g: Roquefort, Stilton or Danish Blue cheese. (I prefer the Spanish cheese Cabrales, highly recommendable!)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, natural yoghourt or crème fraiche, or half of each.
  • a few drops of heavy cream (may be left out)
  • 1-2 tablespoons paprika


  1. Rinse the endives, separate the leaves and arrange them on a serving dish.
  2. Mash the cheese, then add the mayonnaise/yoghourt/cream and mix until smooth and creamy.
  3. Stuff the endive-leaves with the cheese-mixture or fill a bowl (see photo above) and put it in a middle of the serving dish and arrange the leaves around the bowl. Then the guests can dip the leaves in the cheese.
  4. Sprinkle paprika on the top.

Endives served with walnuts and parsely on the top

As an alternative the endives can be filled with blue cheese before serving them. On the photo above with walnuts and chopped parsley on the top.
