Monday’s Meal


2 lbs chicken pieces (I used ground beef because that is what I had)

2 onions, chopped

2 T. garlic, minced

2 tsp. sea salt


Add 4 c. water (or chicken/beef stock)

2 T. Berbere (more can be added for the heat)

2 T. tomato paste

Swirl and heat this all together

15-20 boiled eggs, pierced with a fork.


Chickpeas; drained and rinsed. Tossed with 2 T. coconut oil and roasted for 15 minutes at 350.

2 Onions
2 T. garlic, minced
2 T. butter (can use coconut oil)
I these veggies in the pan, with the lid on for about 25 minutes to get them soft and caramlized.

6 T. Berbere
2 tsp. sea salt

1 qt. chicken broth
4 c. water

5 potatoes, peeled and cubed

Added in the roasted chickpeas

Placed it all in my crockpot on high for about 3 hours, until potatoes were soft and stew had thickened.


1/2 c. oil

4 carrots, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. cumin

1 Tbsp. turmeric

2 tsp. garlic, minced

1/2 head cabbage, chopped

5 potatoes, peeled and cubed


1 lb. beef sirloin cut in 1/2″ cubes

4 T. olive oil, divided

1 T. Berbere

1 lg. tomato

1 medium onion

2 small green jalapenos

In large bowl add the beef and 2 T. olive oil. Season beef with Berbere and salt, to taste.  Let the beef marinate for at least 30 minutes.  Put remaining 2 T. olive oil in sauce pan.  Add tomatoes and onion and cook for 5 minutes.  Add marinated beef and cook for about 10 minutes.  Once the liquid in the pan begins to boil, continue cooking for another 5 minutes.  Remove pan from heat and stir in jalapenos.


1 c. all purpose flour

1 T. brown sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. baking soda

~ sift all of this together in a glass bowl.

In separate bowl, whisk 2 eggs and 2 c. buttermilk (I didn’t have buttermilk, so I used 3/4 c. milk and then I poured enough lemon juice in it to make a full cup).

Mix liquid with dry ingredients.

Get your griddle or skillet very hot with 1 T. oil.

Pour out 2 Tbsp onto your griddle and get super thin someone told me to pour batter out with a ladle so you can swirl it around and it will get the “look” of traditional injera.

They look like latke’s but they taste like injera.


This is our journey of adoption, love, homeschooling and living life to the fullest.....even if we do live in chaos (can't have anyone over syndrome).
