'I' is for Injera. Let us celebrate with Ethiopia!

Hip hip hip hooray!

There seems to be no end to the good and exciting news coming out of Ethiopia.
So many progressive moves following a period of great turbulence.
We at The Food Hut are definitely happy for them.

First, their newly elected Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has made many reforms for good since being elected in April. Half of his cabinet are women including the 'defence minister'!

Next, we just heard today that they have nominated a 'female President' in the person of Ms Sahle-Work Zewde. What a landmark event. We hope she gets every necessary support to really get down to 'Work'. 😊.

This week, our food in focus happens to be 'Injera', made from grains that are unique to Ethiopians and Eritreans, called Teff'. 

Why don't we all make the healthy choice and at the same time help Ethiopia progress and celebrate by buying into their economy.

Let us eat Injera or even use Teff flour for our flour based recipes too.

Here's a clip of an Ethiopian Vegan Food Stall often found at Greenwich Market near The Cutty Sark.
They were adding colour to our recently concluded Woolwich Carnival

Congratulations Ethiopia!
