Recipe Ingredients for Escarole and Chick Peas

1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 cups escarole, whole head
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chickpeas
1 tsp Balsamic vinegar
1 salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp grated Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Escarole and Chick Peas

  1. If you are using canned chickpeas or garbanzos, rinse them well to remove most of the salt. Sprinkling this with a bit of balsamic vinegar adds great flavor but can be omitted or substituted with lemon juice if you prefer.

  2. Instructions:

  3. 1. Wash the escarole and pat dry. Tear into pieces and set aside.

  4. 2. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet. Add the garlic and chickpeas. Cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes or until garlic just begins to turn golden.

  5. 3. Add the escarole and continue to cook until the escarole is limp but still bright green. Season to taste and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, if using.
