  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 to 10 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 head escarole (1 pound), well washed and cut crosswise into 1 1/2-inch-wide pieces
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add escarole hearts, and cook for 1 minute. Add remaining leaves, and cook, stirring until bright green and wilted, about 2 minutes more. If necessary, add a few tablespoons of water to aid in wilting. Add butter, and stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
