Pronounced ( Scadahl) and Beans Escarole and Beans, ( Zuppa Di Scarola E Fagioli )
Poured over bread, the oil and garlic soaked up the bread and this was a delicious Italian Specialty!
This could be thick, or like soup. Just beans, over bread, or both.
Grandma was from Rome,Italy and made a thick style escarole greens and beans over crusty Italian bread, just omitting the broth.
Mom came from Bari, made this like a soup rich with chicken broth and my Dad's mom came from Rome and they liked this plain garlic seasoned.
Then pouring the escarole and beans over hard crusty bread, normally hard as a rock bread and stale!
So we had our fill of this many ways. I love every kinds of beans, greens plain but for me what made it a meal was the bread.
I am a bread lover and that's my weakness, I very seldom eat a meal without dipping bread into the soup, sauce and yes I am a dipper.
Not much to adapting these recipe to pretty basic, easy and filling.
Can you believe this was considered depression food back then?
Mom liked to make it into soup also and add chicken broth on cold days
This is a staple growing up in an all Italian Household. Escarole and beans. This was considered a depression food because of the inexpensive ingredients.
It's easy to make and the best part is its good for you. Full of proteins with the beans and rich greens.
This is served over stale bread and soaks the oil and juices of this delicious garlic infused oil into the bread. the perfect meal and everyone loves it
Escarole is one of my favorite greens in many great recipes and one favorite of our is Traditional Wedding Soup and it's wonderful flavors .
