A fusion of two Ethiopian classic dishes. I recommend LikeitLoveIt's Niteh Kebbeh (Ethiopian spiced butter)Niter Kebbeh for this recipe. Lentil recipe found online somewhere..??

I made this for NA*ME Recipe of the Week. OOOOOH YUM!! I made 1 1/2 batch the first time & it was inhaled & we craved more. So the following week, I made a triple batch & that satisfied us w/a bit leftover. Understand the 'serving size' was about 2c. ;) I used the recommended Niter Kebbeh recipe with huge success. It really doesn't get any easier & OMG it is DELICIOUS!!! I found 20 minutes to be a better cooking time. Thanks, CG!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lentils: Rinse the lentils under running water in a strainer. Place the lentils into a pot of boiling water enough to cover by 2".
  2. Simmer the lentils for 30 minutes until soft but al dente. Do not overcook! Drain thoroughly and set aside.
  3. Combine the red wine vinegar, niter kebbeh, salt, and black pepper in a deep bowl. Mix well. Add the lentils and jalapenos; toss gently.
  4. Transfer to a platter and garnish with diced onion, cilantro leaves and a few lemon wedges.
  5. Let sit for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow flavors to marinate.
