Garlic Greens Soup
If you adore strong garlic, this simple soup is a brilliant way to use up any hearty greens you've got kicking around your fridge. Kale, cabbage and mustard greens would all make ideal alternatives for collards. If you've got greens to use up but are less of a garlic fan, take the amount down to 1-2 cloves.
