“A nice change from a heavy dinner. Serve this with some baked sweet potato fries, or a bowl of soup - something creamy and easy to go with this, potato or tomato or even a creamy butternut would be a great soup to go with this. Also you could make some zucchini fries which I love, healthy and crispy.”
4-6 Whole Pitas

  3. Chick Peas -- In a small bowl add 3/4 cup chick peas, 2 tablespoons of the oil, water and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Pulse the mixture until smooth.
  4. Add this mixture to the escarole mixture. Also stir in the remaining chick peas, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, remaining lemon juice.
