Sauteed Leeks, Collard & Beet Greens

Have you ever bought beets and tossed out the greens? I know I have tossed them out multiple times. But one day I decided to saute them with a little S&P and olive oil and see what would happen. They actually tasted pretty delicious with a spinach kind of texture. Next time you buy beets don't toss out those gorgeous greens, cook em' up! 
I had a really nice bundle of collard green in my CSA box along with 2 beets so I decided to toss all the greens in together and came out with this yummy side dish.

Makes 2-3 Servings

2 garlic cloves, diced
1/4 cup sliced leeks, rings separated
2 tbs olive oil

5 1/2 cups of collard greens and beet greens 

Heat 2 tbs of olive oil in a large skillet on medium/low heat. Once the oil is warm add in the garlic and leeks and cook for 3 minutes. Add in the greens and mix them up so that they are lightly coated in olive oil. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes on medium/low heat or until wilted. Season with S&P.
