The influence of Ethiopian veggie food culture comes from its religious history and the abundance of legumes and vegetables in Ethiopia. Spices are a big part of Ethiopian food cooking because of the spice trade era that brought exotic spices to Ethiopia.

The Menu

From her kitchen to yours (via Zoom), Eleni will demonstrate as you cook along with her an actual Ethiopian meal, described below.

Misir Wot be Dinish: Red lentils simmered in tomato and berbere sauce with potatoes. This is one of Eleni’s favorite ways to cook lentils.
