Adventures in Vegan Ethiopian Cooking
Why wait for a trip to your favorite Ethiopian restaurant? Import the delicious flavors of Ethiopia right to your own kitchen! Kittee Berns offers a basic primer on this popular cuisine that makes it easier for you to savor authentic Ethiopian food without ever leaving home. You'll discover how to source and use the tantalizing seasonings and savory ingredients that are the foundation of these unique dishes.
Kittee introduces the holy trinity of Ethiopian cooking: a berbere spice blend, injera—the fermented sourdough staple, and ye’qimem zeyet, a veganized clarified butter. Armed with these basics, you’ll be ready to dazzle your family and friends with many of the popular dishes found on veggie combo platters in restaurants all over North America. Recipes are almost entirely gluten- and soy-free, or can be made so with easy adaptions.
From saucy wots, spicy stews, and succulent stir-fries to traditional injera-based dishes and fusion foods that blend these unique seasonings into a range of family favorites, fans of this cuisine will be thrilled. You'll also find tips on tools and equipment to time-saving techniques and menu suggestions. Just pull up a mesob (a traditional woven stand or basket), perch your platter on top, and get ready to party—Ethiopian style!
