Ethiopian Cabbage and Peas


We made an amazing Ethiopian meal around a month ago and I'm finally getting around to blogging more about it.  Stay tuned for a complete Injera post, complete with a video of the cooking process! 

This is a delicious, savory dish that explodes with flavor!  I relied on both of our Spice Mixtures and then added more cardamom.  


Ethiopian Cabbage and Peas
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil 
  • 1/2 tablespoon Melody's Spice Mix
  • 1/2 tablespoon The Boyfriends Spice Mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon 5 spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 large onion
  • 6 cloves garlic 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger
  • Salt/pepper 
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 head medium green cabbage
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 8 oz frozen peas 
  • Juice of 1 large lime

Method:
  1. Heat oil, add the spices, onion, ginger, salt and pepper. Saute for 10 minutes
  2. Add the tomato sauce, water and cabbage. Cover and cook for 10 minutes
  3. Stir in garlic powder, peas and the juice of 1 lime
  4. Taste and adjust seasoning
The whole meal with 100% Teff Injera

Beautiful spices!
