Alternatives to Coffee: Chicory Coffee Substitute


| January/February 2002



Makes 6 cups

When roasted and brewed, chicory and dandelion roots have a robust coffee-like flavor and aroma. Unlike coffee, they’re caffeine-free. You can make a pot, refrigerate the leftovers, then reheat as needed. A strong brew may be used to make a Mocha Frosty, pudding, custard, or ice cream. Make it strong or weak, as you like.

• 4 to 6 tablespoons roasted chicory root or roasted chicory root grinds

• 6 cups filtered water

In a saucepan: 

1. Spoon roasted roots or coffee-like grinds into an oversized tea ball. Place the tea ball in a 3-quart glass, ceramic, or stainless-steel pot with the water. Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until dark. If it’s too strong, add a bit more water.
