Escarole and white beans
Friday night dinner for two ala turdacres.

Escarole, endive radicchio overwhelmed by mint and sage!

I love the Winter Greens mix by Renee’s garden. I don’t get too much of the curly endive, but the other two do really well. Great in a salad, though I left them a tad too long I think, and if that’s the case, cook em up italian style, in some greens and beans. Make sure you use white beans (cannelini or navy). So delicious!!

Escarole and white beans

1 head of escarole rinsed and chopped large
1 15 oz can white beans
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
crushed red pepper
salt and pepper

In a big saute pan heat the olive oil. Add the escarole, 1/4 cup of water and wilt. Add in spices and beans cover and heat. Takes about five minutes total and you have a wonderful healthy dinner for two!
