I think you are right about that. Although there can be a lot of variation in Chicory leaves, the leaves and stalk seem too thick. It's still edible though. That is why it was important to state no poisonous look-alikes.

I thought evening primrose too. Chicory will be hair on the back, not sure about EP.
