Whether raw or cooked, escarole is always good for you as it is especially rich in water, fibre and vitamins.
Escarole is known for its slightly bitter taste, which can be useful if you are on a diet and want to ward off sugar cravings. Its distinctive aftertaste can also be mellowed in 1,000 different recipes, in particular traditional Neapolitan dishes.
With its numerous properties, it plays an essential role in promoting well-being and is very beneficial for pregnant women as well.
Used either as a filling in the well-known Neapolitan escarole pizza, with capers and Taggiasca olives, or sautéed in a pan with extra virgin olive oil, garlic and chilli pepper, escarole is both delicious and healthy any way you have it.
