I really enjoyed this! Only a few modifications...sauteed the garlic with the onion in olive oil, added some crushed red chilies and diced celery with leaves. Recipe doesn't specify, but it is very important (in my opinion anyway) to use product of Spain or Italy tomatoes for the best flavor. I served topped with freshly grated parm cheese and crusty bread. So simple and delicious! Thanks
I enjoyed this soup however I used veggie broth instead of chicken broth. It's good with or without the garlic as I have tried it both ways.
This soup was so good. The only thing I did differently was to use a 48 oz can of chicken broth instead of using the bouillon. I also followed the other suggestion of adding in celery (two ribs) and red pepper flakes. My husband definitely said this was a keeper.
Excellent! Made it a few times and never the same. A very adaptable recipe! From different beans, greens to even adding pasta----ALWAYS DELICIOUS!
i am glad i found this recipe; while i used what i had on hand, this recipe was a saving grace for me.
i had just made a small amount of chicken stock, added a small bunch of escarole, and after seeing this recipe, added some bruchetta that i made the other day. i left out the beans, and boy is this good!!! thanks so much for the post islandgirl17!
This is so good. I have never made it with tomatoes before and loved it this way!
I recently made this soup and it was delicious!!! This is my first time eating or making escarole/bean soup. I don't know how to make a recipe without "doctoring" it up, so I made a few changes because I can't help myself. I only added maybe 3/4 cup of fresh diced tomatoes because I had them on hand from making pizza. I used organic "Better than Boullion" instead of cubes because it has a deeper flavor than cubes. While sauteeing the onions and garlic, I also cubed and added a small smoked ham steak (figured it would be a good additive). It gave the soup a richer flavor - I am glad I did that. With some fresh garlic toast, it was definitely a hit in my house. I will definitely make it again - if I don't, my family may hurt me.
