How to Make Vegan Doro Wat

  • For the Niter Kibbeh:
  • Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • When it starts to bubble, reduce heat and let the oil simmer for about 20-25 minutes.
  • Pass through a sieve and reserve the oil.
  • For the Berbere: Process to a fine powder and set aside.
  • Heat a large saucepan. Add the onions and stir.
  • When the onions start looking dry, add 1/4 cup of water and cook until the mixture dries up.
  • Keep adding a couple of tablespoons of water each time the onions dry and start to stick, stirring at frequent intervals, until the onions become golden-brown.
  • Now add the tomato paste, ginger and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the Berbere, 1/2 cup of water, and the Niter Kibbeh. Stir to mix and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Add the mushrooms and tempeh and stir well.
  • Bring the sauce to a boil (add more water if the mixture is very dry), slap a lid on, lower the heat to simmer, and let the mixture cook about 15-20 minutes.
  • Add the white wine, if you're using it, and simmer for another 10 minutes. If you're not adding wine, skip this step.
  • Serve hot over rice or with some crusty bread.
