Key Ingredients for this easy Vegetable & Tortellini Soup
What is Escarole?
Escarole is a leafy green that is bitter in taste. It looks a lot like lettuce but is actually classified as an endive. Escarole is great in soups because it cooks down in the broth. It is loaded with health benefits, too. To name a few, escarole is rich in Vitamin A which is great for our skin and vision health. It contains fiber which helps us keep a healthy digestive track. Escarole is also high in Vitamin K which is linked to promoting bone and heart health, too.
