Why I Love This Recipe
My cooking club meets every month and we recently had an Ethiopian Pot Luck.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 large bunch collard greens, about 1 1/2pounds
1/4 cup niter kebbeh, ghee or olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
2 fresh hot peppers, seeded and minced (or to taste)
1 cup broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
Tear stems from collard greens, and wash greens well. Bring a large pot of water to boiling.
Add greens to water and boil briskly for 15 minutes (I only boiled them for 8 mins,worked fine).
Drain, squeezing water from greens.
When cool enough to handle, slice them thinly.
In a large skillet or stir fry pan, melt the niter kebbeh (or oil). Add onion, garlic, ginger and hot peppers and simmer, stirring ccasionally, about 5 minutes.
Add collard greens, broth, salt, pepper and cardamom.
Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, or until most of water has evaporated from pan.
Serve with injera and buttermilk curds.
