Instructions
Greens
  1. Clean all greens and coarsely chop.
  2. Crush and finely chop garlic.
  3. Using a large frying pan add coconut oil, crushed garlic and greens to pan. This may look like a lot of greens but just like spinach it does cook down. Cook over medium heat until wilted. About 5-7 minutes.
  4. Once wilted turn heat up to high or medium-high and saute until liquid is evaporated and greens are cooked. Transfer to serving dish.
Candied Pistachios
  1. Add pistachios, sugar, ginger, a pinch of salt, a few grinds of pepper and coconut oil to pan. Saute over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Do not let the sugar burn.
  2. Sprinkle pistachios over greens and serve!
Recipe Notes

Add some lemon zest to the pistachios while cooking, then finish the dish with a squeeze of lemon for a light citrus twist.

Taste the leaves before cooking, if overly bitter soak them in salted water for 10 minutes, rinse and pat dry before cooking.
