Love this soup. A real keeper in this family. Very easy and not very prep intensive. Other than the escarole you can have all these ingredients in your pantry or freezer/fridge for a quick go-to meal. Another time saver is to buy the escarole already cleaned and cut. Perfect soup for a busy night.
This has become our "go-to" soup throughout the year! While it's delicious and easy to make as written it's also tasty without meat (and using vegetable stock), with a variety of fresh or frozen greens (kale, spinach, mustard), with bacon, ham or sausage, etc. I typically serve it with a slice of crusty bread & radishes and forgo the croutons. However, it's a perfectly tasty and filling meal in and of itself.
Excellent recipe! I modified with 3 cups of broth, cooked bacon and hot pepper flakes to kick it up a notch.
This soup is absolutely delicious. I added 3 cups of chicken stock and 1/2 cup white wine and it worked very nicely. Also, I used thinly sliced regular ham. Enjoy! Very easy to make, and served with a salad, it makes a simple but very tasty meal!
This is a superb, simple soup. Substitute kale or swiss chard for the escarole if you wish
