While radishes are browning, quarter and core endive. Slice into 1/4-inch pieces and set aside. Add garlic and shallot to pan, reduce heat to medium and cook until radishes are fork-tender, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Add endive and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Remove pan from heat. Add peanuts, cheese and cilantro. Toss to combine and serve hot.
