from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/lentil-and-green-collard-soup/

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup dry red lentils rinsed and picked over
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 bunch collard greens rinsed, stemmed, and roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stir in onion, garlic and salt; cook until the onion softened and translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in lentils, and cook for 1 minute. Pour in water, then bring to a boil over high heat; turn heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add collard greens, and cook until wilted, about 10 minutes. When the lentils are tender, stir in the collard greens and season with cumin and cinnamon; allow to simmer 10 more minutes. Stir in lemon juice before serving.
