This is the time of year when ya just want something warm and comforting to eat. 

It’s also the time of year when ya might have a few extra ell bees to get rid of because you might have eaten way too many cookies and goodies over the holidays.

When I say you, I really mean me.

Braised Escarole and Beans is not only a warm and comforting dish, but it’s also healthy and restorative!

Today I have the honor of posting the recipe over at my friend Julia’s, of The Roasted Root!

Julia is witty and charming; she uses healthy ingredients in a yummy way, and she’s an author!  In fact I pre-ordered a copy of her book Delicious Probiotic Drinks and am eagerly awaiting its arrival next month!

So now that we’re all getting our diets back on track and have boarded the comforting can be healthy train; choo-choo on over to Julia’s for the Braised Escarole with Beans recipe?
