Belgian endive is a leafy vegetable in the same family as frisee (also called curly endive).
In a large skillet, heat the water over medium heat. Add the endive, cut-sides down. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the outer leaves turn translucent.
Remove from the heat and uncover. Squeeze lemon juice over the endive and add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
