Ethiopian Spiced Green Beans

Ethiopian Spiced Green Beans

We made these beans in class recently. The class was about how to cook with herbs and spices. The people in class really liked these beans. The Ethiopian spice blend gave the beans a warm rich flavor. They remind me of green beans I get at a local Ethiopian restaurant.

Of course, you could use the seasoning with any number of vegetables. Carrots, cauliflower, sweet potatoes and cabbage are all veggies I have seasoned with this spice blend.

So here is the recipe for the seasoning mix and how to make the beans.
