 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4   lb           White beans
    5       c            Chicken broth
    2       tb           Olive oil
    2       tb           Minced garlic
    1       sm           Onion -- finely diced
    2       c            Chopped escarole
                         Salt and pepper -- to taste
 
   SOAK THE BEANS OVERNIGHT IN WATER. Drain. Place beans
   in a pot, add broth, cover and cook over medium heat
   until beans are soft, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile,
   place another pot on the stove, add oil, place over
   medium heat, add garlic and onion and cook, stirring
   occasionally, for 7 minutes, or until onions soften.
   Add the escarole and continue to cook until wilted,
   another 10 minutes. Add the beans and broth to the pot
   with the escarole. Add salt and pepper as desired,
   cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve piping hot.
