Vegan and gluten free, but still delicious! This is a spicy little number with red lentils and your
favourite vegetables, the heat from Berbere spice and extra chillies, plus whole grain mustard
which gives the dish another dimension of flavour.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Spice Fusion Ethiopian Berbere
2 or more red chillies, finely chopped
2 crushed garlic cloves

2 cups diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
4 cups diced vegetables, e.g. carrots, eggplant, red capsicum and mushrooms

Heat oil in a large saucepan and sauté onion until translucent.
