Escarole and Bean Soup

Is the any better way to end a day than with a bowl of soup?

I just love this soup. It screams for Italian bread. The broth was so good. Not my usual broth this time. Over the weekend I inventoried what I had in the freezer and cabinets. The only ingredient I had to buy was the escarole. I sauteed chopped onion, celery and carrots. There was some bean stock in the freezer and some Knorr Chicken Stock in the cabinet. I added the stock to the sauteed vegetables. I brought the stock to a boil and added the chicken stock. The broth was good. I did not season it other then adding thyme and crushed red pepper. I added a head of chopped escarole, let that simmer until the escarole was tender. Next I added some cooked chicken meat, had that in the freezer too, and a can of drained and rinsed Cannelini beans. Bon Appetit!
