Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cook the onions for several minutes until they start to soften and turn translucent.

Step 2

Add the oil. When the oil is hot add the berbere and stir.

Step 3

After a few minutes, add the tomato paste and cook for several more minutes.

Step 4

Add the chopped tomatoes, garlic, ginger, and a bit of salt, and cook on low-medium heat until the tomatoes are thoroughly cooked. Add the water (start with 1/4 cup) and bring to a simmer. It should look like a really thick tomato soup at this point.

Step 5

Add the injera and stir, gently chopping the injera as you mix it in. Continue cooking until the injera has absorbed all of the liquid.

Step 6

Top it off with jalapenos and enjoy!

Note: the water used will depend upon the amount of injera you use. Start with 1/4 cup and use up to 3/4 cup

Oh, I really loved this! I kept the tomato raw, since it was a flavorful garden tomato and skipped the jalapenos. So good.
