A random pic of an Ethiopian dish, simply because it’s so delicious! The name ‘beyaynet‘ litterally means ‘mix‘, which explains why this dish always exists of injera with a mix of different pastes on top of it. Injera is THE traditional food of Ethiopia, made out of teff flour. The spongy structure of this kind of flatbread is perfect to grab and eat the pastes. The taste of many of these pastes were completely new to me, I will miss them for sure when I’m back in Belgium! However, some good advice in order to obtain optimal taste: ask the cook politely to use only little Berbere (say: “berbere tinish tinish”), a spice mix based on dried red peppers, otherwise after a few bites all you will taste is fire.
