Chop and de-stem kale, collard greens, turnip greens and mustard greens. Add to a large pan with water, and steam over medium heat until they begin to soften, approximately 4-5 minutes.
Drain water and add in olive oil to steamed greens. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste, and a little lemon juice if you want to remove some of the bitter taste. Saute over medium-low heat until garlic is fragrant, approximately 5 more minutes.
