Ethiopian vegetable stew traditionally eaten with injera, but also completely delicious with couscous

Recipe #90282

This is a new discovery for me but I was quickly converted when this paste helped me make a wonderfully rich tomato sauce, full of deep flavours. Berbere spice paste has many variations. This is a mild form but you can certainly exchange some of the paprika for more cayenne pepper to make it hot and spicy. When you come to use it, in a tomato sauce for example, roast it for at least 5 minutes in your frying pan or sauce pot, adding water a few drops at a time to keep it from burning. The roasting helps the flavours develop.

Another great bread from Ethiopia. This is a spicy, crunchy snack. In Ethiopia, dabo means bread, and kolo is the word for roasted barley, which is eaten as a snack (like popcorn). Together, to name a snack made like bread, the words are similar in meaning to "popcorn bread". I just guessed at the number of servings... depends on how you make it. Thanks to ncmysteryshopper for her inquisitive mind. Here is clarification of berbere. 'Berberé is a blend of hot cayenne pepper, sweet paprika, over a dozen other spices and herbs. Its unique taste and aroma makes food flavourful with cultural dimensions to everyday meal. This exotic spice blend has been foreign to most western palates until now.'

This is a popular drink from Uganda using pineapples, their major crop. It is made using cream or coconut milk and reminds me of the Caribbean. Recipe was adapted from The African Cookbook by Bea Sandler.

This is a recipe out of a children's cookbook my parents bought me when I was little - in fact it's the first cookbook I ever owned called, 'Many Hands' from UNICEF. It's in storage right now, but when I get it out of storage I'll post more recipes from it.

A wonderful mango dessert from Kenya! Any fruit ice cream will work, if you can't find mango. Try peach or fruit sorbet. Canned pineapple can be used for the fresh.

This is a delicious creamy curry with a great orange colour. Serve with naan bread to mop up the coconut juices. Originally a vegetarian dish, replace the sausages with cooked meat-free chunks for Linda McCartney's veggie option.

Piri-piri is a popular Tanzanian dip used for grilled meat and chicken. Sometimes it is also mixed and eaten with rice. It might seem like lot of ingredients, but the preparation is very simple. One of the good things about this sauce is that the quantity of chili powder can be adjusted to suit your personal taste. (In Tanzania, it is very hot). Got this on the net !

Recipe #137874

This recipe is from Zanzibar, Tanzania, where coconut and clove are major revenue and Indian ingredients influence local cuisine. Turmeric gives the dish a yellow color that darkens with cooking. This is better the second day, when the flavors have blended. For a change, you can substitute any other bean for garbanzos.

Recipe #166212

This is a recipe I saw originally in the Sundays at Moosewood cookbook. I use some of the habanero peppers I grow to add heat to this soup, but the original recipe called for about 1/8 teaspoon cayenne. Jalapenos or other hot chiles would also be good substitutes for the habs, although they are by far my favorite hot pepper.
