My cookbook club is making Ethiopian food this weekend. We already have someone bringing Doro Wat, someone is bringing Tikil Gomen (cabbage,carrots, potatoes), and Yemiser Wat (spicy lentil stew). I am tackling injera, but I'd like to make something else as well. The cookbook we are using has so many recipes and I just don't know where to begin! I have only had Ethiopian food in restaurants a few times and I don't recall the names of dishes I really liked.
Our group includes vegetarians, so I'd prefer a vegetarian dish. Anyone have favorites that you could recommend and I will try to find a recipe? Or some essential component to an Ethiopian meal that we are missing?
From cacio e pepe to Ottolenghi-fied, these orange spuds don't lack personality.
