Can I use regular lettuce instead of escarole in soup?

Home More advice Food & Dining

I want to make my mom a lentil soup, but we didn't have carrots. So I found a recipe but it called for escarole. I have no idea what that is, but it looks like lettuce. So could I use regular iceburg lettuce instead of it? Or just not use lettuce or whatever at all?? Thanks
