Ethiopian Berbere Lentils (Yemisir Wot)

I have been experimenting a bit with Ethiopian inspired cooking recently, and this was a huge success:

Berbere Lentils

I used canola oil instead of coconut and cut it to 1/4 cup, and used between 1/4 and 1/3 of a cup of the Berbere spice. It turned out very easy and very delicious. The leftovers were even better. We ate it with injera bread from the Ethiopian shop where I bought the Berbere spice, but it would also be good over rice or you can make your own injera at home.

I also made the turmeric split peas from the same blog, and while they weren't perfect (I undercooked them) they tasted amazing.

When we make compassion our barometer, we don't settle for violence on a small scale. We aspire to kindness on a huge scale. --Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

A co worker had a lunch that smelled so amazing, he said it was berbere! Unfortunately I couldn't taste because it was chicken, but I've been on a mission to make something with berbere!
I have everything now to make the spice mix, if I don't have lentils I'll do tempeh!

thanks for posting this!

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
