    This is a terrific recipe. I omit the tomato paste and increase the garlic a bit. If you can't find it premade, berebere is easy to make yourself. I prefer to make a powder version rather than a paste version just because it's easier to store. Plus, if you make it yourself you can adjust the heat level to your preference.
