Greens Mineira Style

2 lbs. fresh collard greens
3 tbsps. pure olive oil
1 medium-size onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced

Wash the collards thoroughly and bunch together. Take each bunch, roll it tightly, and cut it crosswise into thin strips. Wash the strips and drain them thoroughly. Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, then cook the onion and garlic, stirring them until they are lightly browned Add the collard strips and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes so that the greens are soft but retain their bright green color. Serve hot. Makes 6 to 8 servings
