Wicked Healthy bring you Italian Escarole Soup on behalf of Veganuary so you can try a true ‘Veganuary’ style dish. This Italian soup is typically served at events or holidays, so why not try it at Christmas? When the house is full at this time of the year this dish will make a lot of happy tummies! This recipe serves 8-10 and is ready in 45-60 minutes, recipe courtesy of Wicked Healthy for Veganuary.
