Delve into the flavors of Ethiopian cuisine with Eleni! You’ll learn how to make legumes shine with two hearty dishes that characterize Ethiopian cooking. Eleni will offer an introduction to spice blends as you cook-along and prepare Red Lentil Stew; and Green Bean and Carrot Stir-fry. And of course, no Ethiopian platter is complete without Injera bread. Eleni will demonstrate the steps for this tangy, fermented, teff-flour flatbread that will inspire you to get cooking at home.
Vegan and gluten-free.
About the instructor: Eleni was born and raised in Ethiopia. After moving to the United states in 2001, she worked in accounting for a few years. After her first son was born Eleni found herself at home with a lot of time to recreate the kind of dishes she enjoyed growing up in Ethiopia. This time cooking inspired her to begin sharing those dishes with others, and she established her Ethiopian food business, Eleni’s Kitchen. Eleni’s kitchen has been catering traditional Ethiopian food in Portland, OR for the last eight years. Eleni also teaches Ethiopian cooking classes at Portland Community College.
