This delicious and simple side dish has been in heavy rotation for years now…

With only a few ingredients, but jam-packed with nutrition, these Garlicky Greens make a fantastic side to accompany any meat, fish or chicken dish. Plus, they’re also great inside an omelet.

I’m going to be honest… I use 2 cloves of garlic in this dish. But I really like garlic. If you do too, go for it. It not, stick with just 1 clove.
