Ingredients

½ bunch beet greens
or chard, kale
*
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic
thinly sliced
3 each scallions, spring or green onions
sliced
¼ cup almonds
sliced and toasted
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
*
1 x red pepper flakes
to taste, optional
*

Directions

Wash the greens thoroughly in cold water three times to remove the dirt completely.

Trim the tough ends off, cut the stems into about ¼ inch slices.

Coarsely chop the leaves.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Blanch the greens with stems into the boiling water until the color is bright green, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute.

Drain the greens and stems in a colander, then rinse thoroughly with cold water.

Drain again, pressing on the greens to remove excess water.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Stir in the garlic and scallions, and cook until the garlic starts to turn golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

Stir in the cooked greens and stems, and cook until tender and heated through, about 2 minutes.

Season with salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes if desired to taste.

Serve warm with toasted almonds sprinkled on top.

Note: If you want to make 4 serving, just simply double the amount of the ingredients.
