Tikil Gomen (Ethiopian Cabbage)

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"This is one of many Ethiopian dishes. It is a typical dish that is served alongside other dishes on injera. It's very simple and tastes great. There are many variations on this recipe; it can be prepared with just the cabbage, with carrots and potatoes, with meat, and so on."

Made this dish and enjoyed it. Will definitely make this again.

love it! did not add the turmeric. used olive oil

Delightful. This went so well with injera bread. I used the turmeric and also added a habanero pepper. I cooked it in a tagine instead of on the stove-top. Thank you for the recipe.

I made this as a side dish, and followed the recipe. I used olive oil because it's healthier. I also used the turmeric. Dish is mild and the spices don't stand out. It was great for my dad who...

Very good. Great side dish and easy enough. The spices don't overpower. Olive oil is great and healthier of course.

Delicious. Only addition I made was to use Penzy's Red and Black pepper for a bit of heat. Great side dish and will make again.
