The sad news is the closest Ethiopian food to me is in Montreal. The good news is this allows me to experiment in cooking!
So, one night, I made about 5 different dishes of Ethiopian options. Typically, you share an entree with everyone at your table in the manner shown above in the picture. Then, there is "injera" - an incredibly spongy, thin bread that you use to pick up the food.
The stable of all these different types of dishes are different lentils - I used brown and red lentils and yellow and green split peas for all of the bases. Then, I used tons of different spices.
I am not going to post all of the recipes because there are so many of them. I got ALL of the recipes from the website below. I made them all except for the 'gomen'.
Sadly, I couldn't make the injera bread because I didn't have the right type of flour. However, I plan to find it when I am in a big city next!
I encourage you to make it and share with many friends OR have a week's worth of lunch!
