Back in 2008, one of Marilyn Monroe’s old shopping lists surfaced and people were obsessed with her choices. One item she included on the list was endives. Due to their nutty bitterness, endives can be something of an acquired taste.
However, due to the fact that one can eat them raw or cooked, this type of food certainly piqued Monroe’s interest. It should come as no surprise that the actress probably ate her endives raw, possibly as a substitute for carrots.
