    Ham, Bean & Escarole Soup Wine-pairing-icon-red

    Wine Pairing

    This pairs well with juicy, medium-bodied red wines like the Josep Grau Vespres, Montsant from our Wine Club.

    Directions:

    Cook the ham
    In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tbs. of the olive oil. Add the ham and sauté until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the ham to a plate and set aside.

    Reduce the heat to medium and add more oil if needed. Add the onion and sauté until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.

    Cook the escarole and beans
    Add the broth to the saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the escarole and cook, stirring, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the beans, rosemary and red pepper flakes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes to heat through.

    Finish the soup
    Add the ham to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Using the back of a large spoon, mash some of the beans to thicken the soup slightly. Simmer for 2 minutes more.

    Ladle the soup into warmed bowls, sprinkle with some of the cheese and serve immediately. Pass the remaining cheese at the table. Serves 4.
