Lentil and Greens Casserole with Millet-Amaranth Crust

Adapted From Clean Start by Terry Walters
Serves 4
1/2 cup millet
1/2 cup amaranth
2 cups vegetable broth
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup french lentils
2 cups vegetable broth
2 tablespoons Bragg liquid aminos
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch kale, de-stemmed and chopped
1 bunch collard greens, de-stemmed and chopped
1 cup frozen peas
Add the millet and amaranth to a pot with 2 cups vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat and simmer until all liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside. Meanwhile, add lentils, 2 cups vegetable broth, and Bragg liquid aminos to a medium pot.  Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer and let cook until lentils are tender and liquid is evaporated, about 30 minutes. While grains and lentils are cooking, add the olive oil, onion, and garlic to a pan over medium heat and saute for 5 minutes, until translucent.  Add the kale and collard greens and cook for 10 minutes, until just tender. Add the peas and cook an additional two minutes. Turn on broiler. When lentils and greens are done, mix together and transfer to a casserole dish. Spread the cooked millet and amaranth evenly over the dish. Drizzle with olive oil and broil 4 - 5 minutes to yield a creamy grain topping with a crisp crust. Remove from oven and serve hot.
