Greens and Beans

Greens and Beans is a classic Italian recipe that's as delicious and healthy as it is comforting. You'll want to make this regional specialty again and again!


  • 3 bunches fresh escarole, cleaned, trimmed and cut into chunks
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 5-6 garlic cloves, half of them whole, the other half minced or pressed
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste (depending how spicy you want it- start with less, you can always add more later)
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1-2 14.5 ounce cans chicken broth (if you use two it will be more like a soup)
  • Romano cheese, to taste


  1. Boil the escarole for 5 minutes to par cook. You may need to do it in batches so as not to overload the pot. Drain and set aside. Note: you can also just add the greens raw in later steps but I learned to par cook them first.
  2. While the escarole is boiling, heat the oil over medium high heat.
