Thanks for another delicious recipe using Berbere Spice Blend! I used your Spanish Paprika (Smoked Hot)…I didn’t have the Hungarian Half Sharp Paprika. I love it when the heat from spices is very noticeable, but doesn’t shut your taste buds down…this was exactly that! As an aside, perhaps because I‘m older, I felt no need for additional salt as other reviews noted but agree wholeheartedly with the squeeze of lemon juice.


This was delicious! Like the previous reviewer, I added salt, and also a squeeze of lemon juice at the end to heighten the flavors. I used an open jar of tomato paste instead of the tomato powder – Berbere Spice Blend is lovely.

Great, even though I forgot the tomato paste! Just needs some salt. I like your expertly blended Berbere spice blend.
