A camping buddy cooked this and it was AMAZING. He gave me the recipe, and it’s one of our favorites now.
- 1 onion
- 2-4 cloves of garlic OR a heaping teaspoon of chopped jar garlic
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp Berbere spice*
- 1 1/4 c red lentils*
- 1/2 c Teff grain*
- 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
- 32 oz box of chicken broth
Saute onions and garlic in oil, add spices and cook a bit, add everything else, simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Add more liquid if it starts to dry out.
*All three of these things are available at Ethiopian markets. Berbere is a spice mix, like Garam Masala in India, and it’s delicious. I also got Teff grain and a jar of Berbere spice on Amazon very inexpensively.
You can easily add meat to this, after the spices. I like boneless skinless chicken thighs, but it’s good with sausage too.
