Minted Lentils and Mustard Greens With Ginger
What You'll Need
½ cup dried brown lentils, rinsed
1 bunch mustard greens, stems removed
1 Tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
3 green onions, sliced
2-3 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped
How to Make It
1 In a medium saucepan, simmer lentils in enough water to cover for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Meanwhile, place well-rinsed mustard greens in boiling water and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain greens in a colander and using the back of a large spoon, squeeze out excess water. Remove greens to a cutting board and chop finely. When tender, drain the lentils. Set both aside.
2 Add tamari to sauté pan and heat on medium. Add ginger and green onions and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add cooked lentils and chopped greens and stir to coat. Remove from heat and sprinkle with mint and lemon juice.
3 Serve immediately.
