If you’ve never had Ethiopian food before, you’re seriously missing out. Not only is the Ethiopian cuisine extremely delicious, it also packs a nutritional punch.

In this slideshow , Ethiopian Cookbook author Konjit Zewge reveals the nutritional benefits of nine Ethiopian staples. 

From fibre-rich teff to blood sugar regulating lentils, these ingredients are often used in hearty soups and stews. While these items in particular are vegetarian, meat is another staple in Ethiopian culture and is often cooked in butter for a richer flavour.

Ethiopian cuisine is one of the more forgiving types of food for first-time cooks. Zewge tells The Huffington Post Canada that the beauty of the cuisine is that it can easily be adjusted to your personal taste.

Not a fan of spice? Hold off on the Berbere powder. Looking to add a little nuttiness? Sprinkle on a few more sesame seeds!

Etete: One of Washington’s 10 Best Restaurants

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 22, 2013

EthioCuisine2Politics and power brokers make for some buzzy gossip – and heady prices – at top restaurants. But thanks to the diversity of people who call the United States capital home, the D.C. dining scene is also a melting pot of eclectic flavours and international cuisines. From high-end to humble, there are some must-taste dishes, tastes and places to try.

ETETE

D.C. is known for authentic offerings of Ethiopian cuisine. You won’t do better than this room in the district’s Little Ethiopia neighbourhood. Get the spicy house specialty, the tikul (marinated spiced ground beef), along with a vegetarian platter full of perfectly seasoned stewed lentils, peas, greens and string beans. Then dig in, mopping up every last bit with the spongy, slightly sour injera bread.
