    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 pound escarole, chopped
    4 cups low-salt chicken broth
    1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

    Freshly ground black pepper
    6 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

Add a pinch of salt. Add the chicken broth, beans, and Parmesan cheese. Cover and simmer until the beans are heated through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Ladle the soup into 6 bowls. Drizzle 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil over each. Serve with crusty bread.

  • I felt like this was fairly healthy, but the greens I used were somewhat bitter. I will use up the greens I have to make this again, but I probably won't buy escarole again. - 4/19/10
