Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a small baking tray with foil and brush lightly with olive oil.
  2. Stand the garlic bulbs root side down on the prepared tray, and drizzle the open top surfaces (where you sliced off the tops) with a little olive oil. Roast in the center of the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until they feel soft when gently squeezed. Remove the tray from the oven, and let the bulbs cool until comfortable to handle. Separate the cloves and squeeze each one over a small bowl, releasing the pullp. (Some cloves might keep their shape, while others turn to mush. All forms are welcome!)
  3. Or peel all garlic while it is still uncooked and wrap the cloves in a tight little foil packet, spooning in about 1 tsp. of olive oil. Roast the packet for about 20 - 30 minutes at 325ºF or until cloves are very soft.
  4. Remove the stems of the greens, but leave them whole, if very small, or coarsely chop if medium-small.
  5. Place a large, deep skillet over medium heat. After a minute, add half the remaining olive oil, and swirl to coat the pan. Toss in half of the greens, turn the heat up to medium-high, and stir-fry, turning with tongs, for about 5 minutes, or until wilted. Stir in half the fresh garlic, sprinkle lightly with salt, if desired, then transfer to a medium-sized bowl, and set aside. Repeat this step with the remaining olive oil and greens.
  6. When the leaves have wilted and the fresh garlic is mixed in. reduce the heat to medium-low, and return the first batch of greens to the pan. Add the roasted garlic, turning everything together with tongs to combine. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
  7. Serving Size = 1/4 of Recipe.
