Sauteed Escarole with Mushrooms

When sauteed like this, bitter green escarole becomes buttery and delightfully slightly sweet. You may have to assure your vegan diners that there is no dairy in the dish! It makes for a delicious addition to soups and stews, and combined with meaty mushrooms and pungent onions, is a very satisfying savory dish.

Sauteed escarole can hold its own on any table – vegan to paleo. No need to tell the family that it is rich in folate, vitamin A, and fiber. 🙂

Sauteed Escarole with Mushrooms

Here’s how!

Slice or chop escarole. Wash well.

In a pot of boiling water, cook escarole for 5-10 minutes, depending upon how tender you like it. Remove escarole from boiling water and set aside. If you like, you can immediately throw it into a bowl of ice water to retain the bright green color. Strain water from escarole.

Add escarole and continue to cook and stir for a minute or two.

Add in minced garlic and cook until garlic is tender and well combined. Garlic tends to burn; I almost always add it during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

Salt and pepper, to taste. That’s it! Done and delicious!
