|That's Ye'tikil Gomen Betimatim at the top --stewed cabbage with ginger, garlic and fresh tomatoes. Clockwise from the cabbage: Ye'misir Wot (spicy red lentils), awaze tibs (tempeh sauteed with a berbere bbq sauce, onions and fresh rosemary) and Ye'bakela Allecha (white beans in a mild turmeric sauce). Whew!|
I decided I needed both versions, and the one I made today really tasted good and made me happy. I played on the sweetness of the carrot and added a touch of clove and cardamom, which really shine through the cabbage. If you ever cook with ground cloves, a little goes a looOOOong way. I only used 1/8 teaspoon in this recipe, and I'd be hard-pressed to use more than that in anything, 'cuz otherwise it gets cloying.
