Exceptional recipe. I used a store-bought berbere mix rather than the listed one, but it still turned out fantastically. Everyone that tried it thought it was great. I will definitely be making this recipe more often if I need something simple to mak...moreyellowarcher in Salem loved it
Made this the other night with some quick-and-dirty teff-less injera, big success. I thought two tbsp of berbere might be too much, but when I realised exactly how much 28.5 oz's of tomatoes is, I said the heck with it and went full bore. Very good...moresoudou in Cleveland loved it
