A touch of honey and orange juice mellows the sharpness of the endives and entices even the pickiest eater to give this dish a try. If you can't fit it all on one baking sheet, spread it out between two, so everything has room to roast. To get some prep done in advance, halve and wash the leeks ahead of time.
