This month's Regional Recipes country is a fun one! Ethiopia. I was so excited to participate but had no idea what I was going to make. I hopped on my computer and did a bit of snooping around. This Chickpea Wat really caught my eye. Chickpea Wat is basically a hearty stew made up of chickpeas, vegetables and spices.
Typically, stews like this one are served with a flatbread like Injera. It is folded up and used to scoop up the stew and sop up all of the rich spicy goodness. I did use flatbread for my stew but I cheated and picked some up from Trader Joe's. This was really simple to prepare. That's always a plus in my book!
I loved this stew. It had such big bold flavor and a nice kick with the cayenne, paprika, ginger, cumin and cardamom. I also loved how healthy and low fat it was. I'll definitely be making this again.
I'm feeling lazy tonight so I'm not going to type out this recipe. Just click HERE and you'll find it.
Be sure and hop over to Joanne's blog, Regional Recipes and join in!
have a great weekend!
