Peace Fam!
I love Ethiopian food, and thankfully there is one great place in the city of Atlanta that I love to go out to every so often. Finding vegan recipes for food that I love has proven to be tough. I found this recipe on Spache the Spatula, however, a lot of the recipes I find online are very very bland. I truly believe being vegan does not mean you have to skip out on the taste. They key for me has been to expand my horizons and try other cuisines that have tons of vegan options. Ethiopian food is one of them.

 The lentils are rather spicy, so I would adjust the berbere as you see fit. This dish goes with some rice, salad, and another Ethiopian dish called Tikel Gomen. You are probably wondering where the injer bread is, but the way my cooking skills are set up, it will take me a while to learn how to do that. The recipe is also very easy to follow, the trick is finding the seasonings. You can order online or head to Wholefoods to buy it off the rack.
