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.
