Kick Any Dish Up a Notch
In Ethiopia, where this seasoning is basic to so many everyday dishes, a long list of spices are toasted and mixed to make a complex blend of flavors. Recipes vary from household to household. To kick up RV meals here is a quick, shortcut version of Berbere to stir up in your galley:
3 tablespoons ground red pepper
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Keep in a tightly sealed container and use it to taste in soups, stews and casseroles or as part of your favorite rubs or sauces. It has a real kick, so go easy at first.
Cook’s note: the definition of “ground red pepper” varies from chili powder to cayenne. You be the judge.
