Endive leaves stuffed with tuna

The Belgian endive is a very original and versatile vegetable. You can eat both cooked, for example grilled accompanied by a good meat, or raw in a salad.

Personally it is a vegetable that I love and when its season arrives I like to take advantage of and prepare original and different dishes, like these endive stuffed tuna leaves, a fresh, easy and fun dish, which is prepared in 5 minutes.
