    dicentra's Note:

    From my favorite chef, Rachael Ray. Yum-O! A great combination of flavors. Don’t omit the nutmeg. It is the best part. You can also try this with other greens; spinach, kale, arugula… Add sliced mushrooms with the sautéed onions if you’d like. Grate some Parmesan cheese over the top and serve with crusty bread.

      I have not tried this exact version. but a low fat alternative that I use for thi9s soup is using 1 T of olive oil, omitting the bacon, using kale rather than escarole, and cannellini beans, including the broth from the can. Just another option and although extremely low fat, it has wonderful flavor.

      This was the first spicy greens and beans I've had. It was good with buttered bread
