Servings 4 Servings
Author Michelle


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 lb. escarole chopped and washed
  • Salt
  • 4 cups broth chicken or vegetable
  • 1 can 19oz cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 ounce piece Parmesan rind
  • Ground pepper


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 15 seconds.
  2. Add the escarole and stir until wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
  3. Add broth, beans and Parmesan rind. Cover and simmer until the beans are heated. Season with pepper to taste. Serve.


Sometimes I want more beans; maybe you might have this hankering too! So add another can if you please!

Make it vegan by omitting the parmesan!
