On my way home tonight, I forgot to get the favas. Since I still wanted to participate, I made a dish from Vegetarian Main Dishes From Around the World, a book I got a couple of years ago. I had all the ingredients for a Yemesirkik, or Yemesir Wat, as I've only been able to find it online. It's a lentil dish made with red or brown lentils, onions, berbere and garlic.
Pretty simple! Well, I don't have berbere, but I whipped up a version with the spices that I do have, minus paprika. I'll be eating it with some steamed chard and a whole wheat tortilla. Perhaps I'll give the injera a try one day. Maybe when I have my good camera fixed so I can take prettier photos.
