    Not an authentic recipe as it misses out the Teff flour. I made this version as I cannot find Teff anywhere!

    Recipe #184017

    This is a must-have recipe for those who love ethnic foods. This is a very filling option as well.

    Recipe #219899

    This recipe is from the October 2006 issue of Cooking Light. It's very tasty! The original recipe calls for using breast halves, drumsticks and thighs. I just used skinned, boneless breasts. Also, used olive oil instead of cooking spray. This is their description - " This flavourful Ethipian-inspired chicken stew uses Berbere, an Ethiopian spice blend. Store extra spice mix covered in a cool, dark place for up to two weeks. Use leftovers on Salmon, flank steak, or chicken for fiery flavour. Serve with basmati rice. **prep time includes marinating time *Additional tip*- MaidinAfrica suggested swirling a bit of plain yogurt on top just before serving so we tried that - it's really good and the contrast of colours swirled together makes for a very pretty presentation!

    A traditional Ethiopian/Eritrean dish. Very hot, so be prepared. If you're used to hot curries, you'll love it! Berbere pepper is a spice mix of mostly paprika and chili with some other spices (recipe included). It is also delicious on barbecues and in hot tomato sauces.

    Recipe #456985

    This lovely salad has a distinctive flavour due to the tarragon, which also adds a touch of sweetness along with the sugar and the oranges. It looks terrific in the bowl and tastes even better. This salad is based on one served at the Magic Pan restaurants here in Toronto back in the 1970s; the recipe was published in the local paper ages ago and I modified it a bit to more suit my tastes. The Magic Pan is now gone but its memory lives on with this delicious salad!

    Recipe #14055

This recipe comes from "Classic International Recipes".

    Recipe #454642

    I am posting this to serve with Easy African-style peanut chicken. I am a single mother with a disabled child. Since I work and go to college, I need easy, delicious dinners. This isn't really authentic but a friend of mine is in Africa and sends me recipes to "tweak" for my ease of cooking!
