Sauteed Greens with Tomatoes and Garlic

Sauteed Greens with Tomatoes and Garlic

One 16-ounce package Trader Joe's brand Southern Greens Blend OR 16 ounces of your own blend of mustard greens, turnip greens, collard greens, spinach, and/or kale, large tough stems already discarded, washed well and cut up into bite-size pieces
8 ounces grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced vertically in half
2 large garlic cloves, minced (0.6 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Heat a 12-inch deep skillet (will need a cover for later on) over medium-high heat (7.0 for induction cook top) until hot, but not smoking. When skillet is hot, add 2 tablespoons olive oil to the pan. Swirl the pan to evenly coat the bottom. Add all the southern greens to the pan.
Cover with the lid and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 to 8 minutes. Greens will also cook down significantly. If pan becomes dry, add more olive oil as needed.

When 6 minutes of cooking is done, uncover pan and add the tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper. Continue to cook, uncover, stirring frequently for 1 minute.

Remove from heat and transfer to a serving dish.

Yield 4 to 6 servings
