Line sieve with double thickness cheesecloth. Scrape yogurt into sieve; place over bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate until reduced to 1 cup (250 mL), about 6 hours. Discard liquid. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

In large bowl, stir together drained yogurt, red pepper, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper; set aside.

Trim bottom off each endive. Remove 24 of the larger leaves, reserving remaining leaves for another use; wash and pat dry. Spoon 1 tbsp (15 mL) yogurt mixture near bottom of each leaf. Top with pecan half.
