Why I Love This Recipe

My cooking club meets every month and we recently had an Ethiopian Pot Luck.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 1/2 onions chopped small
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 T fresh minced ginger
1 tomato, chopped
3T berbere
2 C red lentils, washed well
3-4 C water
1 t salt (more or less)


Saute the onions well without oil.

Add garlic and ginger when the

onions are very soft and saute a few minutes.

Add the tomato and saute a couple minutes more.

Add berbere and saute for a minute or two.

Last, add the lentils and 3 C water.

Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the lentils are soft.

Add more water as the lentils

cook if needed.

Add salt and it's ready to serve.
