Rahel's miser (red lentils)

Rahel's miser (red lentils)

well, here we are on day two of vegan mofo (vegan month of food)! i’m lacking a kitchen at the moment but in the meantime i’ve been able to sample some prepared meals at whole foods. most things haven’t excited me, however i found some ethiopian food from the los angeles restaurant, Rahel Ethiopian Veggie Cusine. everything is vegan and i’m really quite fond of the miser- red lentils with injera. it’s around $6.50, which seems a bit pricey, but i ate one half for lunch and i’ll save the other half for tomorrow. i cooked up some spicy savoy cabbage on the electric skillet and it went perfectly with the lentils. i’ll post the recipe for the cabbage later. there will also be a review of Rahel’s restaurant soon to come. hold on to your pants!

dear east bay,

you are so lucky to have so many fine ethiopian establishments to choose from. we visited ethiopia restaurant in berkeley and were happily delighted. i ordered the nene’wee, which consists of five vegetarian items to choose from a possible twelve, and all for $10.95 ($9.95 for lunch). the injera (spongy crepe-like sourdough bread) is made with 100% teff! i loved the engudai we’t (mushroom stew) and yemisir we’t (red lentil). it was all so good and fresh!

meals by genet! you shouldn’t even waste your time reading this drivel.. just go and NOW (although they are closed on monday and tuesdays)! this is by far the greatest ethiopian restaurant i have tried.. because i am vegan i haven’t tried the meats, however i hear that those are quite amazing, too. but we won’t talk about that here. i have tried the tofu tibs (cooked in oil, not butter) and those are down right fantastic, too.

if you don’t like the injera (bread), you can order your veggie with rice. its not officially on the menu but i have a gluten-free friend who has done it quite often. although this meal is intended to be shared, i have on many occasion finished it solo! remember to say hello to genet when you pass by the kitchen to wash off your hands!
