Ethiopian Stew

Ethiopian Stew

This is an easy slow-cooked or one-pot dish. It is slightly spicy, sweet, and rich in flavors. This recipe uses berbere spice, which is the key ingredient in many Ethiopian dishes. It’s a combination of more than 10 individual spices. You can easily make your own Berbere spice. I also have purchased berbere through Amazon and local Ethiopian restaurants.

Prep time    15 minutes  

Cook time   45-60 minutes    

Yield               4 servings

 🌱Ingredients
  • 1 ½ cups dried lentils
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Berbere Spice 
  • 5 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
  • 1 red onion, medium diced
  • 2 cups diced butternuts squash
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons pureed ginger
  • 2 cups chopped frozen spinach

👩‍🍳Directions

  1. Put all the ingredients in a pot and simmer until the lentils are tender, 45-60 minutes. Do not overcook because the lentils will turn to mush.
  2. Add water if necessary to thin the stew. I sometimes I like to add extra tomato paste for a richer flavor.
