וועגאַנמאָפאָ: "E" is for Ethiopian Greens, Beans and Quinoa Stew

די “V” Word continues celebrating וועגאַנמאָפאָ מיט די אנדערע 25 אותיות פון די אלפאבעט. Today is the letter “E” which is for Ethiopian Greens, Beans and Quinoa Stew.

The weather is getting colder and if you want something warm and hearty to take the chill off, this is the dish for you. It’s healthy, delicious and so satisfying! And spicy! It uses an Ethiopian Spice blend known as Berbere which is a mix of chile, פּאַפּריקאַ, ינגבער, קנאָבל, קאָריאַנדער, קאַרדאַמאָם, פענוגרעעק, מושקאַט, קלאָוועס, cinnamon and allspice.

The best thing about making spice blends is that you can change it up to suit your tastes. Make it hotter or less spicy. Leave stuff out, add other spices in. If you don’t have fenugreek or cardamom, don’t worry about it. It will still taste delicious. I chose to add cumin because I love it and I used fresh ginger, garlic and onion rather than adding the dried forms to the spice blend.

Every time I make this, I vary the ingredients based on what I have on hand. One time I used red kidney beans and kale. Another time I used cannellini beans and collard greens. I always use quinoa because it’s my favorite grain but feel free to use rice, פאָלק, cous cous, whatever you like.

My Ethiopian Greens, Beans and Quinoa Stew is so filling, no side dishes are necessary. It is a full meal in one bowl. I love one-pot meals. This is quick and easy to make. If you don’t have quinoa cooked already, it can cook in the 15 minutes it takes to make the rest of the dish.

I love the firey, spicy taste of this dish. If you want to cool it down a bit, add some vegan grated parmesan or a dollop of vegan sour cream or yogurt. Or just let the spices dance on your tongue.

    סוזאַן – דאַנק. Do you know a way to make the recipes printable on Blogger? Even when I want a copy, I just cut and paste it into a Word doc. I’ll try to figure it out or else, I’ll just have to write a cookbook 🙂

    הי ריאַ: Can’t WAIT to make this recipe over the week-end! One suggestion I have about your site: it would be nice to have an easy way to print your recipes. Just a thought.
