I have prepared several of the soups from the Women's bean project..very good and easy to make.
I have also given these for gifts...I always think it is two for one this way...supporting the women putting together the items and giving them as gifts!
I used to live in India and could/would love to eat curries every day. I also like Mexican food. This blend has given my cooking a new kick and I have been using it lately for most of the meals I cook. Right out of the bag, it's not so fragrant, I can't identify the spices right away, but with a little salt combined with meat and vegetables it is almost magical. Not so identifiable as one cuisine or another. Just delicious. A little goes a long way, so experiment. A wonderful find!
As an off and on vegetarian (more on lately), I'm always on the hunt for great veg dishes, and one of my favorite cuisines is Ethiopian. I love going to Ethiopian restaurants, but they're all located about as far east in the city as I am west, so it's not always convenient to go there, so I've been teaching myself to cook many of the dishes I love. One of the key ingredients to the spicy dishes (Wat) is berbere, the blend of various spices, both mundane and exotic. I could probably make my own blend, but i'd end up going to s spice store and probably spend more than I wanted to, so this ready made berbere is perfect! When I ordered it, I thought it was for a 1lb bag, and it turned out to be 2lbs! Well, I'm not going to complain, and I'll probably have it for a while, but for me, that just means I can feel free to make as much yeshimbra assa (spicy chickpea "fish" stew) and mesir wat (spicy red lentils) as I want!
This berbere has a great smell and when I tasted it plain, it has quit...
The package directions were very clear. My husband hated to admit that he likes pea soup! I'm excited to try the rest. I've been telling people about this great marriage of skill assistance and great taste. I will be back for more!
