Escarole and White Bean Soup

Jump to recipe

Whenever I’m hungry and in need of something that will make good use of whatever’s in my fridge/pantry, I make soup.  I especially love broth based soups with greens and beans – I almost always have most of the ingredients on hand, and to me, it’s the perfect combination of healthy, hearty, and deeply comforting.  On a recent rainy night, I had a craving for Escarole and White Bean Soup, an Italian classic that combines slightly bitter escarole with creamy cannellini beans in a flavorful broth.  I had all of the ingredients on hand except escarole, so I made a quick trip to Whole Foods to pick up my greens and then got cooking!  In less than 30 minutes, dinner was served.  It’s a quick, one pot meal that really showcases simple ingredients in a delicious way.  I love to eat this soup drizzled with good quality fruity olive oil, with warm crusty bread for dunking.
