Misr Wot (Ethiopian Spicy Lentil Stew)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse lentils in a sieve under cold running water and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, saute onion in canola oil over medium heat until the onions turn golden, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add ginger and garlic and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add RawSpiceBar's Berbere spices, stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add lentils and cook for about 5 minutes.
  5. Add chopped tomatoes and broth, bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, until lentils are soft, about 25 minutes. Stir occasionally, adding more liquid if needed. Salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with a dollop of yogurt and cilantro. Works perfectly with a side of injera or naan bread as well. Enjoy!
