Berbere is a staple in most Ethiopian dishes.

The spice blend usually consists of basil, garlic, ginger, rue, ajwain, nigella, radhuni, and chili peppers. Traditionally, they mix the spices and herbs that are in season.

Ethiopians love all things spicy and usually even out their pallets with a naan-like bread called injera. Made of fermented teff flour, injera is always torn with the right hand and wrapped around stews, soups, and other entrees.

With family and close friends, injera is fed to each other to symbolize closeness and strong bonds.
