      I only made half the spiced butter so as to have no leftovers. I loved all the veggies in this dish and the complex seasoning blend. The berbere made this taste very African. In fact I served this alongside Ethiopian Spicy Split Lentil Stew (Yimser Wot) , Atar Allecha , and Injeera bread for an Ethiopian dinner. It was great! Thanks, threeovens.
