 Escarole Soup Recipe


Escarole Soup

1 head escarole

1 large onion

1 ½ cups diced celery

3-4 cloves garlic

8 cups basic vegetable stock (I use Kitchen Basics because it has LOW SODIUM)

2 bay leaves

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. oregano

Salt and pepper

Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)


Tear the escarole into small pieces.  Dice the onion and celery.  Mince the garlic.

In a soup pot, begin warming the broth, alone with the bay leaves.

In a large saucepan, heat the oil, add the onion, garlic, celery and oregano, sauté for about 4 minutes (I would sauté until the celery is cooked) on low heat.  Add the escarole, stirring constantly, until it wilts.  Transfer this mixture to a soup pot.  Simmer gently for about 30 minutes.  Remove the bay leaves.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.
