Grilled radicchio with cannellini-bean hummus and hazelnuts (below, serves 4) Cut 2 radicchio into quarters and brush with olive oil, then grill for a few minutes on each side until soft and lightly browned. Meanwhile, add to a food processor the following ingredients: a can of cannellini beans (drained), a good splash of olive oil, a clove of chopped garlic, a squeeze of lemon juice and seasoning. Blitz together for about 2 minutes, into a smooth and creamy hummus. Spoon the hummus onto four plates, top with 2 quarters each of grilled radicchio, drizzle with balsamic syrup (if you don’t have any, boil balsamic vinegar until syrupy), scatter over chopped hazelnuts and fresh thyme and serve.
