Wonderful Spicy Ethiopian Vegtable Stew, to be served with Injera

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel potatoes and carrots into 1/2 inch pieces. Put in large sauce pan and fill with water until vegtables are just covered. Bring to boil, then simmer for 15-20 minutes or until vegtables are tender. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.
  2. Puree onions, ginger, garlic, and peppers in food processor. Pour oil in large sauce pan and put on medium heat. Add onion puree and sautee for five minutes, or until onions no longer smell raw. Add water, salt, pepper, cardamom, and cooked vegtables. Stir well and simmer for 15 minutes.

This is pretty good. I made Injera to go with this and the two went well together. Easy to put together and a good winter dish. Next time I would be inclined to use only 1.5 or even 1 cup of water as the end product was a bit watery. I added some cornstarch and also mashed some of the potatoes and carrots to try to make it thicker. Taste was good though. Thanks for posting!

Fantastic! I served this with Doro Wat (chicken in red pepper paste) and must be served on injera to properly enjoy. I didn't have any fresh garlic so I substituted a tsp. of chinese chili-garlic paste for the garlic and hot peppers which added a nice bit of heat to the veggies.
