Ingredients
  

  • 1 kg. 35 oz of escarole
  • 2 fillets of anchovies in oil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tbsp of desalted capers
  • 1/2 cup of black olives
  • extra virgin olive oil to taste
  • salt and chilli pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Let’s clean our escarole by removing the tough and damaged outer leaves, then wash it in plenty of fresh water, letting it soak for about 10 minutes and changing the water often.
  • In a saucepan, we add a little extra virgin olive oil, the garlic clove and chili pepper, sauté for 1-2 minutes on a low flame, then add the anchovy fillets, capers and black olives .
  • We let the ingredients season on a low flame for a couple of minutes.
  • We add the escarole leaves cut into two, three parts and let them wilt without a lid for at least 5 minutes, then cover and continue cooking for about 20 minutes.
  • Just before the end of cooking, we adjust the salt (very little, the anchovies are already salty) and season further.
  • Our Scarole, olives and capers are ready to be brought to the table, perhaps accompanied by a few slices of toasted homemade bread.
