Introducing Our New Meal Kit: Ethiopian Misr Wat & Quick Injera

Ethiopian misr wat is a richly spiced lentil dish usually served with injera, a nutritious teff flatbread.


Authentic injera requires a 48-hour fermentation process similar to sourdough bread-making. Our 20-minute injera mix will satisfy your Ethiopian food cravings MUCH faster.

Behind the Scenes

20 minute injera mixWhen I find a new food I love I typically ask myself whether I could pull off making it at home. My answer was always "no" for Ethiopian dishes because injera is so difficult to make.

For this kit our goal was to make injera quicker and easier since this is what holds many home chefs back from cooking Ethiopian food. The 20-minute injera mix creates a frothy batter that transforms into a tasty and spongy injera crepe.

Featuring: Eleni's Kitchen Simmer Sauce

Eleni Woldeyes of Eleni's KitchenThis kit features Eleni’s original kulet simmer sauce which was spotlighted in a 2009 edition of The New York Times Dining and Wine section. The sauce evokes the traditional, open-flame style of Ethiopian cooking and is rich in exotic aromas. It…is…SO…good!

Eleni Woldeyes was born in Ethiopia. In 2001, her mother received an invitation to attend a relative’s wedding in Atlanta. “We had always wanted to come (to the United States), so when we got the wedding invitation, that was it,” she said. After the wedding, the family moved permanently to the U.S. where Woldeyes attended graduate school and met her husband. She spent a few years working in accounting before discovering her passion for cooking and launching Eleni’s Kitchen.

LOVED your Ethiopian kit meal! Our whole family enjoys ethipian food and I have made several attempts at making injera from scratch at home, yet unsuccessful! Your kit was so easy to use, my teenage girls made the whole meal and it turned out to be delicious!! Mesir Wat is our favorite dish and we were so happy with the results. Thank you for this awesome idea!
