Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stir in onion and salt; cook until softened and translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in lentils; cook for 1 minute. Pour in water, then bring to a boil over high heat, then turn heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until lentils are tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add collards, and cook until wilted, about 10 minutes. When lentils are tender, stir in collards and season with cumin, cinnamon, and garlic; allow to simmer 10 more minutes. Stir in lemon juice before serving. From
