  1. Remove hard stems from greens.
  2. Stack leaves on top of each other. Roll into a tube shape. Make a few stacks if needed.
  3. Use a sharp knife to slice leaf rolls into 1/4-inch wide strips.
  4. In a large bowl filled with cold water, add cut greens. Allow any dirt to settle to the bottom of the bowl. If greens are very dirty, repeat this step. Lift greens out of bowl. Shake off any excess water.
  5. Peel and mince garlic.
  6. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil.
  7. Add greens. Use caution, as oil might splatter when damp greens are placed in hot pan. If greens can't all fit in the pan at once, cook in two batches.
