Another chickpea salad

This is the first time I purchased radicchio. I have eaten it before in salads while dining out but I had never used it at home. I think this recipe was from Food Network magazine. You saute 1 cup of fresh parsley in 1/4 cup EVO. You add that to the rinsed chickpeas and radicchio that is cut into wedges. Season with salt, pepper and lemon to taste. The fried parsley adds such a sweet taste. I shared this with a co worker and she loved it. This is actually tomorrows lunch. I feel so healthy and organized.

escarole and beans

I think that the good in this meal overcomes the bad. You cook the bacon and then crumble it. Then you cook the garlic in the bacon grease, next add the escarole and cook for a few minutes. Add the rinsed beans and season with salt and pepper, heating through. I added dried oregano too. I used white beans one day and pinto beans another. Both were good.
