Escarole & White Bean Soup

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

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.

"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. "

We added 14 oz more broth and some chorizo sausage. Great dish and easy to make


Love this soup- I like to cut the beans in half and add some eggplant to the onions/carrots during the saute part. It's definitly worth hunting down the escarole instead of the spinach.
