Finish by adding 400 g cooked rice, mix again and leave just long enough to heat through.

A very classic recipe, but which can easily fail due to two main errors: too much water in bottom of dish because endives give off a lot, and endives that are too bitter so that children hate it. Here is a method which avoids these two problems.
