Berbere Spice Mix (Ethiopian) from Food.com: Here is another version of the distinctive Ethiopian spice mix that flavors many of their dishes. Use it to season grilled fish, poultry or meat during cooking, or sprinkle it on meat or vegetable dishes at the table. I found this recipe in Homemakers magazine.
BERBERE-SPICED RED LENTIL HUMMUS (Part 1) 1 1/4 cup red lentils (picked over and rinsed) 3 cups water 2 large cloves garlic, peeled 1 tablespoon tahini (optional, but good) 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 1/2 teaspoons berberé seasoning (below), or to taste salt to taste (optional)
