Gomen Wat (Ethiopian Greens)

ORIGINALLY POSTED BY HUBBY ON OUR UPSTATE LIFE

So far on this blog, we have passed along a great recipe for Injera, the traditional Ethiopian bread. Injera tastes a little strange and sour and, so, there are 3 amazing recipes that you can cook to dump on top of it. We've also given you the first of the 3 recipes, Doro (Chicken) Wat. The other 2 recipes are Gomen Wat (Ethiopian Greens), and >Kik Pea Alecha (Chick Peas/Garbanzo Beans Stew). We're going to tackle the Gomen Wat this week and, coming up in the next few weeks, we've got some Latin American recipes as well as a great FettuciniAlfredo recipe for you. Enjoy!

1 lb. Green Kale, chopped fine
1 Medium Onion, finely minced
