Djibouti!


Last night was a "Djibouti" themed dinner party (we're getting through the alphabet). Luckily, their food is practically the same as Ethiopian food, which I love!

We bought the injera bread from an Ethiopian restaurant, and then we made three stews:
an Ethiopian split pea stew from the Vegan Lunchbox cookbook, a mixed vegetable stew similar to the one in the same cookbook, and Djibouti lentils: http://www.celtnet.org.uk/recipes/miscellaneous/fetch-recipe.php?rid=misc-djibouti-lentils

It was all very delicious!

what a great idea! I had no idea you could get fresh injera like that from restaurants... did you just ask and they made to order for you?

oh yum- thanks for the injera tip- I've never tried making it at home, so the idea of picking it up at a restaurant is very tempting. (of course there are no Ethiopian restaurants where I live, but that's just a small detail...!)
