How to Make Fresh Garlic Greens


  • 1Prepare the lettuce by cutting an inch off the bottom. Wash the leaves well in a sink of water, rinse well to remove all the dirt. Tear the leaves into pieces, and drain on paper towel.
  • 2Place the escarole in a large pan, add the garlic, and 1/4 inch of water. Cover the pan with a tight fitting lid and steam the leaves until wilted, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • 3Now that they have wilted, pour off the excess liquid.

    Season with salt and pepper, and add the olive oil. Toss well. Continue to cook until tender, about another 5 minutes.
  • 4Place in serving bowl and enjoy!
