Greens are good any time of year! They go well in the winter when you need a warm side dish, or in the summer when you need something to go with some bbq. This is an easy and quick dish to throw together, but does require a few hours of cooking.

4 cups chicken broth
1 Tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves - minced

Turn stove to medium heat, and in a large pot and add oil. Sauté onion for 2-3 minutes until translucent. Add in garlic and cook for an additional minute.
Add greens in bunches until they start to wilt down. Add in broth a little bit at a time to help cook them down.

Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. This can also be transferred to a crockpot at this point and cooked on low for 4-6 hours.
