Gomen (Ethiopian-Style Collard Greens)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add collards and cook until soft, about 15 minutes. Drain well in a colander.Advertisement
Add onion and 2 tablespoons water to the pot and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the onion is translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Add oil and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomato and jalapeño; cook, stirring a few times, for 5 minutes. Stir in the greens, cover and cook, stirring once or twice, for 10 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in tikur azmud (or cardamom and cumin), cover and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in salt.
Tip: Tikur azmud, aka black cumin seeds, are often used to flavor breads and clarified butter.
