Does anyone have a chicken & escarole soup (or turkey & escarole soup) recipe they love?
Considering repurposing some leftover turkey in this one: http://www.goodhousekeeping.com/recip...
Escarole and Beans......pretty straightforward, but I like to mash half the Cannellini Beans for a bit of creaminess.
the foundation for a soup like this is excellent stock. if you're not using home-made, buy a good brand without weird junk in it, like kitchen basics.
i'd skip the carrots and onion and use more garlic as well as tomatoes. squeeze some lemon juice in at the end. a generous dash of red pepper flakes too.
I like a combination of chicken, escarole or kale, tortellini and cannellini. With a good grind or two of black pepper and a little dill.
