Sidedishes: Collard Greens and Curried Lentils
« on: January 10, 2012, 12:13:33 AM »
Tom was kind enough to swing by our shoebox-efficiency tonight  to pickup a tonearm (Linn Basik LVX on LP12 board), and had a few bites.  I make these often because easy, tasty, and what-the-heck, even nutritious  -- lol:


Lightly Curried Lentils

1-2 Tablespoons oil (used olive)
1 medium (baseball sized) onion  (I  1/4" dice or minced -- chop however you like)
3 Cups water
1 Cup lentils  (unlike other dry beans, you don't need to pre-soak these)
1/2 Tablespoon coriander
1/2 Tablespoon curry powder (we like McCormick -- any brand is fine)
1/2 teaspoon ginger -- minced or grated
pinch of salt

pressure cook for 3 minutes, or if stovetop, low and slow until lentils are tender.



Collard Greens

1/2 Cup chicken stock or broth
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons tomato (chopped/diced/crushed/puree -- any form will do)
1 small onion (chop/slice however)
3 cloves garlic, mince or chop
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar

pressure cook for minutes, or regular pan low&slow hour+

(I tried this with bacon and beef stock instead, but like the above recipe way better)

Sante!  ("To your health!")

And 1 lb package of frozen collard greens   :P

If using fresh, soak in water to clean, then chop up for recipe.   :D
