Doro Wot

An oldie but a goodie from Ethiopia! Chicken is expensive there (or was when I lived there), so this would normally be served around the holidays, the Nativity and Pascha especially. Any day's a good day for doro wot though, and since I was in need of a pick-me-up I decided to try my hand at this. (It's been a long time since I made it last.)

Smoked Tofu Pumpkin Soup

This recipe came together rather by accident - a mix of homesickness for fall in North America, a pumpkin sighting at my local grocery store, and the delightful discovery of smoked tofu for sale at a 'meat' shop (protein shop?) near work. You may not have smoked tofu available where you live, and if that's the case I am profoundly sorry. It seriously rocks my world! I think that this recipe might be okay without smoked tofu (maybe), but thankfully I haven't had to try it without yet!
