Escarole and Garlic Saute

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 12 mins

I'd never tried escarole and was curious to see what it tasted like. It didn't taste as bitter as I thought it might be and was a pleasant change from my usual vegetable recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant and lightly golden, about 1-2 minutes. Don't let garlic get too dark, or it will ruin the taste of the dish.
  2. Stir in the escarole; season with salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender - about 10 minutes.

I really, REALLY reccommend chopping the garlic instead of pressing it; garlic is so easy to burn in oil and in such tiny pieces, that seems unavoidable. I would have chopped it but tried following the recipe first, and when that resulted in burnt garlic I went back to using chopped. Otherwise this is a deliciously easy recipe. I doubt anyone could dislike this saute, even if it is with kind of a bitter veggie!
