Shown above: African Beef Stew.

Shown below: Recipes for spiced butter and Injera, a flatbread commonly known as Ethiopian Silverware.  



1 cup of Teff flour (If you can't get Teff flour, fine wheat flour or buckwheat flour will do).

1 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda

2 cups of Cub Soda



In a large bowl, combine the flour and the baking soda.

Add the club soda and mix well to form a mixture of about the same consistency as pancake batter.

Brush a large skillet lightly with oil.

Heat until hot over medium heat.

Carefully pour the batter in a circle around the edge of the pan until the center is filled in.

Tilt the pan and gently shake it to fill in any air holes.

Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the surface is spongey.  DO NOT flip the bread.

Gently tip the pan, and slide the Injera bread onto a plate.

Repeat the above steps until all of the batter is gone.

Arrange the bread around the edges of a large plate, with another piece in the center.

Serve Injera with any type of stew.
