    I’ve made it 4 times now. I love it! I’ve shared the recipe with several other people, and they’ve all liked it as well. Some put a little less Berbere spice myself, I like it. It will be a much used recipe

    This is amazing! Since we’re sheltering in place desperate times call for desperate measures and I used what I had on hand. Subbed brown lentils for red, red onion for yellow and frozen spinach for fresh. I added carrots as others did and used the full amount of spice. Cooked it an hour since brown lentils take longer. Very, very yummy with some sriracha squeezed on top. Good thing hubby doesn’t care for lentils - I get this all for myself!

    This was delicious, so flavorful! I used 2tbs of berbere, but omitted the cayenne, because it was perfect amount of heat with the 2 tablespoons! I saw someone recommended cauliflower so I added it too! It is perfect. Don’t even miss the meat! This is gonna be a staple recipe!

    OMG! This is so good! I made it with the turmeric basmati rice. This is my new favorite vegan meal. I used full amount of Berbere and half of the cayenne.

    I absolutely love this dish. It never fails me. I do change it up once in awhile and it still turns out great.

    Really nice but I thought it needed a little something extra so added some peanut butter

    Absolutely wonderful! We love spicy dishes. So thick and nourishing. Everyone wants me to make again, which is so easy!

    Excellent!! Goes wonderfully with the turmeric rice recipe in the blog (which was a bit on the sticky side; I’ll use less water next time). The Berber spice blend recipe also amazing even without the fenigruk seeds. I diced the potatoes into slightly smaller pieces than in the photos. 30 minutes cook time was spot on.

    This was delicious! Couldn’t make it as spicy as it calls for, but was great all the same. Definitely a keeper!

    Very happy with this stew. Not too spicy. I felt like I was in Asia or Africa. Great meatless dish.

    Very nice! I didn’t use spinach.

    I loved this recipe. I used the max berbere and cayenne which made it VERY spicy, so next time I’ll use a little less. It was still delicious and hearty! Will definitely put this in regular rotation.

    I love this dish. I made my own Berber Spice. Super easy. Make a large amount. I’m hoping it freezes well.
