How to make Escarole and Beans recipe
Escaroles are one the best examples of greens packed with various flavors. Every layer of the greens is a different shade in green and packed with one flavor each. The extreme outer layer is a dark green and quite bitter in taste. The innermost layer is a light green with just a subtle hint of bitterness.
