Chicory is a flowering plant in the dandelion family. It is native to Europe and  Asia, but it is now grown in many parts of the world. The plant has a long history of  medicinal and culinary use. The most common part of the chicory plant used is  the root. The root is roasted and ground into a powder, which can be used to  make a beverage that resembles coffee. Chicory coffee is caffeine-free, but it has a similar flavor to coffee. It is often used as a coffee substitute, or it can  be mixed with coffee to reduce the caffeine content.
