- 1/4 cup dry white wine

How to make this recipe
In a medium pot, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and sliced fennel and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the wine and cook over moderately high heat until almost evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add the escarole and water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring a few times, until the escarole is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the parsley, dill and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, garnish with the fennel fronds and serve.
The greens can be refrigerated overnight. Reheat before serving.
