I hope you all remember the travesty that was the “Have you tried Radicchio?” adventure. I know I can’t forget it. So, when faced with yet another new lettuce-type substance, I was nervous. As far as I know, I had never tried escarole and I knew I couldn’t trust EF for saying it was delightful. I’d fallen for that one before.
It looked ok, it smelled ok, but I took my first bite with great trepidation. But guess what! EF didn’t lie to me!! Escarole is delightful. It was green and yummy and something about it vaguely reminded me of artichoke (and let’s face it, that’s never a bad thing!). The recipe was super simple and took approximately 5 minutes to cook. I suggest you keep this on the back burner for any night you need a quick and healthy side dish.
