Here is a very quick and easy escarole side dish recipe. Escarole is a type of endive and is slightly bitter.
Escarole and Chickpeas
2 small heads escarole, sliced into 2-inch strips
1½ cups cooked chickpeas or one 15.5 oz. can chickpeas
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp olive oil
In a large frying pan on high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the chickpeas and garlic, then sauté for 1 minute. Add the escarole and sauté for 3 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
