Time to make: 20-30 minutes.
The simple flour and water dough is kneaded and then fried like bannock before being crumbled and drenched in butter and honey for a simple, but satisfying dessert. One might call it Ethiopian popcorn.
1 cup flour
Up to 1 cup water
4 Tbsp. Spiced Butter
3 Tbsp. honey
Salt to taste
Mix flour with a small amount of water. Add just enough to make a kneadable dough.
Knead well. The dough should be thick.
Create a round ball and flatten.
Lightly grease frying pan with olive oil and heat to medium.
Place flattened dough on frying pan.
Cook until golden brown, turning often.
Chop dough into small pieces in a food processor.
Mix with honey and butter and serve immediately.
Personally, I don’t like ice cubes, so I just substituted some really cold water. I wasn’t at all sure what I would get from this, as I don’t usually like a combination of orange and milk either. But this was very nice. I am glad I tried it and I will try it again, especially for a quick breakfast on a hot summer day.
A two-in-one recipe as you get the Honey-Mustard Dressing as well. I have always loved the combination of spinach and oranges and this dressing sets them off very well. Prepare the dressing first and set aside until ready to serve.

This is one of several beverage recipes which are basically water flavoured with seeds. Very easy to prepare and a lovely refreshing beverage with health benefits too. As the author explains:
“Flax seeds are a natural laxative. You can drink this daily for your health. Mix the powder with hot water and sweeten it with a little bit of honey. Have it before bedtime for it also has relaxing qualities.”
Get out your mixer for this one. It calls for both whipped cream and stiffly beaten egg whites. And with all that beaten material folded in, it seems almost like drinking air. Unfortunately I did not have rum at home to spike it with. But it was still quite good.
