  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans no-salt-added garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

Heat broth to a simmer in a large, high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, ginger and jalapeño and cook until onion is tender and translucent, 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in curry and garam masala and cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, garbanzos and 1 cup water and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in collards, cover and cook 10 minutes more, stirring occasionally, until greens are tender. Stir in cilantro and lemon juice and serve.
