Heat the vegetable oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat.
Add the greens and the garlic and sauté until the greens are wilted slightly.

Everything Bagel seasoning is available to purchase in certain grocery stores, but you can also
make it yourself by combining sesame seeds, poppyseeds, and dehydrated garlic and onion. By "cooking greens" I mean any leafy greens that you would like to eat cooked. Things like spinach, Swiss chard, bok choy, and kale are perfect here.
