Easy Escarole Soup

This soup is by far one of the easiest soups you can make. It’s done in less then 25 minutes and perfect for those busy weeknights or chilly cold weekends. It’s an Italian favorite for sure. Top with some parm and crushed red pepper and with a glass of vino. You are set.


1 lb Escarole, chopped 

2 garlic cloves, minced 

1 small onion, diced 

Salt & Pepper, to taste 

2 tablespoons Evoo 

32oz of broth of choice 

2 cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

1 small piece parmigiano reggiano, optional of course but totally worth it
