Next to Chicken Soup this is perhaps an Italian favorite for a rainy day!
A wonderful green easily prepared & a variety of dishes.
Cut a small slice from base to release leaves. Escarole requires a good rinsing to remove ground dirt.
Old World Style… heat pot with plenty of garlic & oil without browning.
Add ripped leaves as you sir, I love to add chicken stock for a full flavor.
Salt & pepper to taste,… onion /scallions, parsley flakes, red pepper flakes as well (optional).
Adding shaved carrots, beans, or a variety of veggies for a light soup.
Tiny meatballs for Wedding Soup! Rice is another option. Beans & escarole go well for a meal or side with fish or chicken.
