I satisfied my craving for Ethiopian food and made Tikil Gomen (Ethiopian cabbage dish.)

I gathered the ingredients together…

Yellow onions…


Onions were chopped and set aside

finely chopped garlic…


Along with garlic, must not forget that!

Cubed potatoes fresh from the garden…


Oh, we must not forget the potatoes. Guess what? They were dug up from our garden…

Head of cabbage (cubed) from our garden…


We most certainly can’t forget the main ingredient… cabbage! Yes, this came from our garden also!

Thinly sliced carrots…


Whoops, before I close the pot, I must add carrots and add some spices and herbs!

Presto 8qt. Pressure Cooker


I guess it’s time to close my Presto 8qt. Pressure Cooker.

Ten minutes later, I opened the Pressure Cooker and was greeted with the wonderful aroma of this lovely Ethiopian dish… cooked to perfection!

There are a few firsts with this recipe. It’s the first time that I’ve made Tikil Gomen for my daughter. She really enjoyed it immensely. It’s also the first time I used my Presto 8 qt. Pressure Cooker, it arrived earlier today.

I must say, I really love the Pressure Cooker. Now I don’t have to look longingly at my 23 qt. Pressure Cooker that I use for canning. The Pressure Cooker makes everything tender. I imagine it would do an awesome job with meat.

Tomorrow I’m making Siga Wot (Ethiopian beef stew) for my daughter. Since my mother is working, I’ll be sure to make enough for my father.
