Why I Love This Recipe

This is a simple and quick meatless dish or use as a side dish.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 or 2 bunches of escarole, chopped into about 1 inch pieces
1 or 2 can cannellini beans, drained
clove of garlic, chopped
olive oil
salt and pepper
hot pepper seeds optional


Start by washing the escarole in the sink filled with cold water or in a large pot of cold water. Shake it around so all the sand falls to the bottom.

Take the leaves out of the water and put into a strainer to drain.

Repeat this process till all the dirt and sand is removed.

Drizzle about 1/2 to 1 cup of olive oil in a large skillet. Heat

Drop garlic into heated oil, don't let it get too brown.

Add the chopped escarole and let it wilt.

Add the drained beans heat through.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

You can add the hot pepper seads if you like it a little hot.
