Can left-over brewed ground chicory root be used by gardeners to enrich the soil around plants, just as used coffee grounds can be used for that purpose? I can't find anything online on this subject and I'm throwing away lots of "used" ground chicory that I'd love to scatter around my plants IF it would be good for them!  
Thank you!

As left-over organic material, it can be used as mulch—spread on the top of the soil—or in compost. In either case it will break down and add nutrients to the soil. If using as mulch, just don’t apply so thickly that it forms a mat on the surface.
