Berbere Seasoning's rich, warm and lively spices play well against succulent beef (or tofu) and lentils in this hearty stew recipe. This Ethiopian staple ingredient is a must-have in any lentil stew and is also a popular rub on chicken and lamb.


  • 2 tablespoons Frontier Co-op Berbere Seasoning

  • 3 cups water

  • 1 cup uncooked lentils

  • 1 pound cooked beef or cubed tofu

  • 1 can (14.5-ounces) no-salt-added diced tomatoes


    Combine all ingredients in a soup pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about an hour, stirring occasionally, until lentils are tender.

    Use cooked beans of choice in place of lentils and heat just until serving temperature. Use uncooked rice (brown or white) in place of lentils.
