Escarole & White Bean Soup

October/November 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (98 votes)

Don't be afraid of escarole, which looks like slightly frilly romaine lettuce, because it cooks down into a sweet and tender green. If you can't find it, substitute a 10-ounce bag of spinach. Make It a Meal: Warm crusty bread and a green salad make an excellent accompaniment.



READER'S COMMENT:
"We couldn't find escarole at the time, so we ended up using kale. You do need to cut the kale up into much smaller pieces, but it worked out great and some of us like it better than the escarole. "

Love this recipe, but made a couple of changes. I started out with 4 slices bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces, browned. Removed them from the pan, sautéed the veggies in the bacon grease (after pouring some off). Also, pureed half the beans with the chicken stock to make the broth a little thicker. You may want to add a cup or so of water to thin it out a little.

Instead of using tomatoes, I chop up a small white potato. It just seems to go better with the flavors and textures of the base vegetables. I make a huge batch of this and it disappears from the refrigerator within a day or two. Highly recommend.

Easy, fast, flavorful

Super easy and very flavorful. Agree with others you can play around with different veggies. Save yourself the fat and calories...you absolutely don't need that much oil!!!!!
