ESCAROLE IS THE NEW CAVIAR


I am completely hooked on this stuff!  A great winter comfort food. The best part is that it's so good for you - low calorie and tastier than just about anything.  This is a photo I took of my version, made from this recipe and then topped with some goat cheese and walnuts (or almond slices, your choice).  I also add some lemon juice and substitute old bay seasoning for crushed red pepper flakes while sauteing.  
If you make it, please let me know what you think - I'd love your feedback!

Oh! I'm so glad you posted about this. I had the most amazing pasta dish many years ago in San Francisco with escarole...it was new to me but I loved it. I have bought it since but was never sure exactly what to *do* with it and my attempts failed miserably! I'm definitely going to try this out - thanks!!!

I love escarole. I just might make this tonight. And your toppings love divine! I always need my cheese and nuts on my greens. You should upload your photo to the Whole Foods website. I just saw that they don't have a photo uploaded yet!
