There is something about a food that is only available, for a few short weeks every year especially when we are talking about ramps. Ramps are a type of wild onion, sort of like a green onion with a garlic onion flavor. They are only available in the early spring mostly at farmers markets and are so flavorful they just need to be sauteed with a bit of oil and a sprinkling of salt. For this recipe I just dressed it up a bit for fun with more garlic and a sprinkling of Pecorino.

Escarole Casserole with Walnuts

I am not really an escarole fan. I love greens like kale and I have come to love chard, but for some reason escarole has evaded me. So when my husband bought two big heads of it on sale I had to get creative. I knew that just sauteeing with garlic and oil would not work for me. I am hoping to try a nice soup, maybe something with white beans, but last night I didn't have the time or ingredients for that, so I made this dish that was a surprisingly big hit. Perfect to make ahead, reheat and serve too, so that is an added bonus. You can also add white beans to this dish if desired.

This recipe is really two in one. Start with the braised kale on day one and then use the leftovers for the KailKenny on day two. You get two great dishes with tons of nutrients.

 

Braised and Raw Kale with Pine Nuts

This kale side dish seems a bit unusual at first, but the contrast of flavors and textures between the two kale preparations really does work well and it is a nice change from my usual, which is just sauteed with garlic.
