Adding garlic to the pan as the oil warms infuses it with flavor.



For greens with tough stems, such as kale, collards, or chard, remove the leaves from the stem before washing. Wash greens carefully. An easy way to do this is to fill a sink with cold water and submerge the greens. If the water has sediment, drain the sink and repeat. Chop leaves into bite-size pieces.

Pour oil into a large skillet. Crush garlic directly into oil. Add pepper flakes if desired. Place pan over medium heat. Stir garlic occasionally as pan warms.

When garlic begins to soften and turns translucent (before it is brown), add greens. Toss to coat with oil. Sauté briefly over medium heat until leaves begin to turn brilliant green. Cover pan tightly and lower heat. Cook until leaves are tender, 2 to 10 minutes.
