 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Olive oil
  • 1 Head escarole
  • 2 Belgian endives
  • 1 Boston lettuce
  • 2 tb Minced garlic
  • 1 ts Ground coriander
  • 1/2 ts Thyme
  • 1/2 ts Rosemary
  • 1 c Water
  • 2 tb White wine vinegar
  • 1/4 c Whipping cream


PREHEAT OVEN TO 350F. TRIM and discard the outer leaves from the escarole,
leaving the lighter green center. Cut in half from root to tip. Trim and
discard any discolored outer leaves of endive and Boston lettuce and cut
them in half from root to tip. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over
medium heat and add the lettuces. Cook until golden on both sides. If
lettuces don't fit in the skillet, perform this operation in batches. Add
garlic, coriander, thyme, rosemary, water and vinegar, cover, place in oven
and cook 15 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the stove top and remove the
lettuces. Let cool on a plate. Press the lettuces and add any braising
liquid to the skillet. Add the cream and cook until the liquid becomes
saucelike. Pour into a bowl and let cool. To serve, cut halves of Boston
lettuce and escarole in half. Arrange all lettuces on a platter and pour
the sauce over the top.
