CICHORIUM INTYBUS  The roots of the Chicory are famous as a coffee substitute especially in the Mediterranean as well as in India, parts of Southeast Asia and southern United States, particularly in New Orleans.  The root of the plant is said to have medicinal value.  It has a mild laxative effect, increases bile production from the gallbladder, and decreases inflammation. It is also rich in beta-carotene.  Chicory root extract is high in a compound inulin, a polysaccharide similar to starch, and is used as a high-fiber dietary supplement.  Also the volatile oils are said to be able to get rid of intestinal worms. The leaves also can be eaten raw in salad.  Common in typical Roman recipes, where it is commonly fried with red pepper & garlic to impart a slightly bitter yet spicy flavor to meat or potato dishes.  The flowers are usually blue and are very pretty.
