So When I made this Ethiopian Gomen Wat recipe, I steamed frozen collard greens in a foil-wrapped package along with other vegetables. I’ll post how to make this simply and easily in the pressure cooker, although of course this can be done stove-top as well.
Instant Pot Ethiopian Gomen Wat
I’m going to post this as a PIP recipe, just the way I made it because I think making it PIP also ensured that the collard greens didn’t get water-logged and need a lot of cooking to evaporate the water that pressure cooking invariably leaves. I’m also providing stove top instructions below.
When I made this, I also cooked red lentils for Mesir Wot at the same time and since both things cooked in 5 minutes, that worked out really well. That to me, would be the advantage of doing this in the pressure cooker vs. cooking on the stove, as well as not having to stir or babysit in any way.
So the steps to this recipe are:
- Put frozen collard greens in a bowl or foil packet along with some other aromatics and seasonings
- Steam for 5 minutes in the pressure cooker with the vent sealed
- Finish in a small pan on the stovetop.
