A spicy vegetarian dish using a homemade spice blend and red lentils, meat-eaters won’t miss the meat! This Ethiopian dish is known as β€œMisir Wat”, and uses a beautiful spice blend β€˜Berbere’.

Berbere Spice is a hot peppery spice made with a combination of spices such as chili, garlic, cumin, ginger, coriander, cinnamon, nigella, fenugreek, and ajwain. It is most often used in stews, of meat, vegetables and lentils but you can add it to anything. This delicious Ethiopian lentil stew can be served with a homemade Injera flatbread. We made a local, South Africa version of Injera, try it here.

Make the Berbere Spice Mix and store it in an airtight container for future use.
