This quick, savory recipe is short on prep and long on flavor...

and works just as well with cabbage as it does radicchio. Capers add a briny pop, while parmesan cheese adds an umami dimension and a splash of vinegar ties it all together.

What you'll have to do

Step 1 Slice the radicchio into wedges about an inch thick and lay out on a sheet pan.

Step 2 Turn your oven’s broiler to high; roast the radicchio under the broiler until charred, roughly 5-10 minutes depending on your oven.

Step 3 Remove radicchio from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Add capers to the sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil; set under broiler for 2-5 minutes, until they start to brown and crisp.

Step 4 Meanwhile, coarsely chop radicchio and transfer to a mixing bowl.

Step 5 Add roasted capers to the mixing bowl.

Step 6 Using a vegetable peeler (or grater), shave strips of parmesan directly into the mixing bowl.

Step 7 Drizzle with olive oil and the vinegar and mix well; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 8 To serve, transfer to a serving bowl and, using a zester or microplane, finely shave more parmesan over the top.
