Sauteed Italian Greens

Debbie Sue


Our favorite Steak House of over 40 years, serves these greens. I finally asked what type of greens are these? The waitress said, escarole. To me escarole is a lettuce. But anyway, this is as close as I can come to their delicious Italian Greens!
If you like spinach, you will love this! Yum, yum! :)

20 Min


a nice fresh head of escarole
4 Tbsp
olive oil
4 clove
garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste


1Remove the stem of the escarole, by cutting a 1/2 inch off the bottom. Now the leaves are loose.
2Wash the leaves very well to remove all the dirt and grit.
Place the greens in a large sauté pan, with 1/4 inch of water. Cover pan with lid, and steam the leaves for 5 to 10 minutes. (they will wilt and reduce)
3Now that they have wilted, pour off the excess liquid. Season with salt and pepper, add the olive oil, garlic, and toss well.
4Sauté for about 10 minutes. Can you smell the garlic? Yum yum! Enjoy!
