Time: 20 minutes Serves: 2 Ingredients

  • 3 tbs Amaarech Shiro Blend

  • 4 tbs olive oil

  • 2 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1 veggie cube

  • 0.5 litres hot water

  • Salt to taste

Optional 1 tbs Qibbeh (vegan Ethiopian spiced clarified butter) Directions

  • To a medium sized pan add olive oil, minced garlic, turmeric, and cook the garlic until fragrant.

  • In a jug mix the veggie cube with hot water (not boiling) and pour into the pan once the cube has dissolved.

  • Add Amaarech Shiro Blend and whisk until everything is combined and bring to a boil. Put the lid on, reduce the heat to the lowest setting, and simmer for about 20 - 25 mins or until the oil surfaces.

  • Add the qibbeh if you have it or a dash of good quality olive oil, adjust the salt, and take off heat.

  • Serve with a side of simple timatim slata (tomato salad) and freshly made injera.




Note Add more Amaarech Shiro Blend if you want the shiro thicker. However, it is important to know that the shiro will get thicker as it cools. You can purchase the Amarrech Shiro Blend here
