Here’s an easy Vegan Ethiopian-style Mushroom Stir-fry that is delicious and quick to make but tastes wonderfully complex. Pleasantly spicy, savory, and delicious.

Ethiopian the cuisine after Indian that is a favorite in my home. The spices and slow roasted flavors are addictive. I have a few Ethiopian inspired options on the blog. I wanted to make some tibs, a traditional Ethiopian dish that typically refers to cubes of meat such as beef, poultry, or lamb. The protein and prep varies from recipe to recipe so does the amount of spiciness and there are versions with and without added bell pepper.

The meatiness of button mushrooms makes them a great substitution here. They withstand sauces while maintaining some texture. Any mushrooms like portabella, white, cremini or other thick mushrooms will work.

Berbere spice blend is a deeply earthy-meaty-umami- spicy blend. The key ingredients are usually red chili peppers, fenugreek, and ginger. The heat from the chili comes after you have eaten a couple of bites and I would call this mushroom dish very moderately spicy. Depending on the brand the spicy ness varies. if you’d like less heat, start with less and add more if needed.

Ingudai tibs can be served with injera bread for a delicious vegan Ethiopian meal. To up the protein even more, serve them with split pea stew Kik alicha , Ethiopian lentil stew (missir wot). Another great side would be potato cabbage atakilt wat and the various lentils and some injera or flatbread.

Ingredients:

  • sliced red onion are sauteed to get that umami going
  • chopped mushrooms – I like using cremini here but portobello or white or oyster also work
  • spices: dried rosemary, berbere, paprika, garlic, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, onion powder
  • for cooking the mushrooms we add a splash of red wine or balsamic vinegar

Tips:

  • If you decide to make your own, there are several variations of the berbere spice. I like the blend at World spice as it isn’t that hot. Their blend contains Ajwain(carom seeds), Cloves, Fenugreek, Ginger powder, Tellicherry Black Pepper, cinnamon, Cardamom, Coriander, and Piquin chilies.
  • Make your own Berbere spice using the recipe here 
  • we add the dried rosemary before the rest of the spices to allow for it to release its flavor properly
