Lentils With Sweet Potato and Collards!

Yum, this turned out great first time around! I just love my Instant-Pot, seriously makes cooking all grains and legumes effortless. But you can make this on the stovetop as well. I used a big ripe heirloom tomato, but you could used canned tomatoes as well. This recipe is so savory, filling, and satisfying, the perfect end to a day 🙂
You need:

1/2 cup green lentils, washed and sorted

1 large heirloom tomato, sliced

1/2 large leek

2 cloves garlic

Pepper to taste

Turmeric 1tsp

Cumin 1/2 tsp

Ginger 1/2 tsp

Sweet potatoes (3 small/med), lightly steamed 

1/2 large bunch of collards, washed and chopped

2 cups water

Cook for 15 minutes in an instant-pot or pressure cooker (on legume setting), or simmer on a stovetop for 15-20 minutes  or until lentils are tender. Easy and delicious.
I served mine over spelt berries (cooked with lemon juice, salt, pepper), but any grain of choice will do!

Serve with some avocado or hummus for some healthy fat, and garnish with cilantro and green onions.

Enjoy!!!
