Yield: 6 servings
Time needed: about 20 minutes

Prior Preparation Needed
Boil and cool eggs

A very simple salad, my favourite kind, and quick to prepare. I used the Swiss cheese recommended in the recipe, but I think it would be quite nice with feta, havarti, or cheddar as well.

Fresh Spinach Salad

Fresh Spinach Salad
1 qt. chopped fresh spinach

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine salad ingredients in a bowl.
Combine dressing ingredients in a small lidded jar and shake well.
Just before serving, pour dressing over salad and toss.

Hot Chicken Stew

Source: The Recipe of Love
Made: December 18, 2013
Yield: 6-8 servings
Time to make: 2½ to 3 hours.

A note to myself from the first occasion on which I made this recipe says “3 hours to make but worth it!”  Now that I have tried it again, I am still of the same opinion.  If you are a fan of hot, spicy dishes, this is one of the best.  If you are not try Mild Chicken Stew instead.

The basic procedure is:
Marinate the chicken (45 minutes)
Make the sauce (30 minutes)
Add chicken and braise (25 minutes)
Add first round of spices and continue to braise (20 minutes)
Add second round of spices and continue to braise (15 minutes)
Turn off heat, add eggs and let sit for 20 minutes before serving.

Best accompaniment for this dish is lots of injera and a green salad on the side.

Before beginning, check that you have some of the special Ethiopian condiments on hand such as spiced onion, spiced butter, berbere mix and garlic and ginger mix.
