The magic in this dish comes from perfectly toasted garlic. To achieve this gorgeous golden hue -- and avoid bitter burned garlic -- be patient.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine olive oil and garlic in a large skillet. Set over medium-low heat and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 6 minutes.

  • Remove garlic slices as they turn golden (they won't all brown at once) with a fork and drain on paper towels, leaving oil in pan.

  • Increase heat to high, add escarole, and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Add stock. Cook until wilted.

  • Season with lemon juice, and drizzle with olive oil. Top with garlic chips.
