Tikel gomen is Ethiopian style potatoes and cabbage. Add some carrots and spices and it’s the perfect side or main dish. It’s vegan and yummy!

Hey Folks,

This week, I found this tikel gomen recipe from The Stay At Home Chef, but I had to tweak it because I simply did not have ginger powder or the time to make some. Fresh ginger, in my opinion, tastes a little better anyways. The recipe was very good and tastes just like what I have had at Ethiopian restaurants. Lately, I have been slipping enough to where I saw a slight spike in my blood pressure so I have to “tighten up” my vegan diet right now. Switch it up with your go to’s to make sure you don’t fall into a rut.

Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a 6.5-Quart Covered Stockpot over medium high heat.
  2. Toss in the carrots and onion and saute them in the oil for about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the seasonings (salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric, ginger) and toast for a minute.
  4. Add in the cabbage and potatoes. Stir to combine. Cover the pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until the potatoes are soft, about 30 minutes. (actual time will depend on how big you cut your potatoes).
