1 pound collards or other greens 1/4 cup olive oil 1-2 cloves garlic, minced Salt Freshly ground pepper
Wash the greens well, removing all sand, in several changes of cold water. Remove any tough ribs, then cut or tear into small pieces. Drop the greens into a large pot of boiling water and blanch them for about 10 minutes; remove and drain well. Put the olive oil and garlic in a pan, add the blanced, drained greens, cover and cook over low heat for 20-30 minutes. Season with a little salt and pepper, if necessary.
