Sauteed escarole with garlic
Here’s a thoroughly Italian technique for softening this leafy green’s bitter edge. It’s excellent served with roast chicken or grilled veal chops.
1 large head escarole (about 1 pound)
2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
5 large cloves garlic, sliced paper-thin
- Remove the core from the escarole. Cut the escarole into 1 1/2” pieces. Wash the escarole well in a colander under cold running water. Dry thoroughly.
- In a very large nonstick skillet with a cover, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until just soft, without browning it at all.
- Add the escarole (it will wilt considerably), salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and cover the skillet. Cook until the escarole is soft but still retains its shape, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
