Preheat oven to 475 degrees.  Place pork in zipper bag along with 1 clove minced garlic, soy sauce, 1/2 tsp. salt and pinch of pepper..Marinate for a few minutes..(You can rub the above into pork if you are in a rush.)
When oven is hot place pork in roasting pan..Set timer for 25 minutes or until pork is barely pink in center.  Meanwhile slice carrots at an angle and finely chop 1 clove garlic.  In a skillet , heat remaining tablespoon olive oil on medium, add carrots and cook 4 or 5 minutes or just until tender..stirring occasionally..Add garlic and Spinach or Swiss Chard and pinch of salt and pepper..Cook 5 to 6 minutes or until tender..Remove from heat.
