Greens and Beans is one of my favorite Italian recipes. It's quick and easy to make, tastes delicious and is very healthy! Made with escarole and beans it is easy cheap to make and is a great Meatless Monday option.
The combination of legumes and bitter greens like escarole is common in southern Italy Escarole is a bitter lettuce that looks a little bit like frisée but with wider, tougher leaves It’s high in vitamin A and a good source of iron and potassium
A classic Italian dish—greens and beans. We use our meaty, tender Cannellini beans with savory escarole and sauté them together with bold garlic & red pepper flakes. Perfectly hearty, but light enough for the warmer weather.
