    Yum!! Did you find lentils that you were happy with? This looks absolutely delicious.

    That looks yummy! I’ve never heard of berbere, but I’ll look around and see if I can find it. Utah isn’t exactly a gourmet cook’s playground.

    Also, I promise I’ll blog a batch of almond milk as soon as I finish the carton in the fridge! 🙂

    That looks so good! I’m going to have to try and find that spice somewhere so I can make this dish! Yum!

    Oh, and my nut bag came in the mail! Hooray! I can’t wait to try it out! 🙂

    Um, next time you come to Dallas, we should meet up!! 🙂

    Oh, yum. Yum. I’m such a fan of dahl, and this looks like its spicier cousin. Time for a trip to The Essentil Ingredient for some Herbie’s Spices, I think. (Plus, this fits right into my current ‘collecting recipes for budget student living’ plan. Ta :D)

    Much better than I thought it would be. And I don’t live that far from Blue Nile. All you have to do is ask nicely (by making more blondies!) and I’d go get you some injera.

    I love this dish! I have had a couple of meals at Ethiopian restaurants in Dallas and I liked it a lot; it is spicy and full of flavor. Glad to hear you enjoyed your weekend in Dallas!

    This looks amazing! I’ve never attempted anything like this on my own before, but definitely something I want to try. I’m a huge fan of African foods.

    Okay, how did you know I’ve recently become obsessed with Ethiopian food? I love you for posting this recipe!

    I just went to Blue Nile for the first time and had this, and thought “Huh…How does one make this?” Thank you for the recipe. I’ll certainly be trying it! I think they sell berbere at Blue Nile. Dang, I should have bought some! Glad to know I’m not the only KC vegan. Vegan peeps are sparse around here. Have you been to FUD yet?

    I kind of liked that it was random, or as you say a bit disorganized. I think I kind of expected it. The portions were smaller than most restaurants, but as I started eating realized that it was probably all I “should” eat. My hubbie ordered the wild rice meat chalupa, and I totally agree about how awesome it was and how much I need the recipe! I’ve been dreaming about that cashew cream. We went back a second time, and they didn’t have any because the machine was being repaired, but I’m sure we will head back again. I want to take my kids. My oldest is fascinated with my new diet and tries to catch me eating animal products, so having him try that ice cream will be fun. He says he’s kind of vegan and kind of a meat eater ha ha! I’m going to Blue Nile to get the spices I need to make the lentils for sure this week, and would love to take one of the classes they offer. None are up currently, but I’ll keep looking 🙂

    Um hello! This looks amazing! I’m making this tonight! or… tomorrow! lol
    Looks fantastic! Thank you so much for the link!

    What ingredients are in the berbere you use? I looked up the mix and, according to Wikipedia, it is composed of some items that I couldn’t get easily, so I ordered some online. I received it the other day only to find that this particular mix is all items that I had in my spice cabinet! Thanks in advance!

    Oh my goodness! My kids bought me some spices from our new favorite restaurant (aka the Blue Nile) for Christmas & I am totally trying this tonight. My honey is stopping by Blue Nile to bring us a package of Injera to eat with it! Thank you – thank you – thank you! I’ll let you know how it goes! 🙂
