This Ethiopian red lentil stew, Kik Wat, is a satisfying vegetarian dish spiced with berbere seasoning and cardamon.
This is a blend of spices used in African-inspired cooking. It's available in most large supermarkets in the spice aisle.
Phenomenal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Done and done!!!!!!! This recipe made a LOT of food... but I tried a bunch of Ethiopian dishes including meat dishes and this was by far the winner of the bunch. The good thing about making this quantity of food in one sitting is that it freezes well and is even more delicious when you go back to it. I failed attempting to make injera, so I probably won't try that again however I served it with rice which paired perfectly with it. I found smoked Basmati rice at my supermarket... and WOW! The perfect pairing!!! - 16 Jan 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was very delicious. I halved the recipe and it was still so much food! I didn't have crushed tomatoes so I substituted half a can of tomato paste. Also I only used about half the onions because I just didn't have that many onions. I served it over basmati rice. It made really nice lunch leftovers too. - 04 Dec 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious. My family loved this spicy stew on a chilly fall night. Served with warm naan. Heavenly. I cooked on the stove, refrigerated overnight, and heated in the crock pot all afternoon. - 23 Oct 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
