Ethiopian Timatim Fit Fit

Living in Washington DC, we’re blessed with a plethora of Ethiopian grocery stores that we are happy to take full advantage of.  =)  There’s something so satisfying about being able to buy a fresh injera rather than havng to make it yourself.  We always buy a pack when we cook Ethiopian, but then end up with extra that we don’t want to waste.  We’ve found that Timatim Fit Fit is a great use of excess injera.  It’s like a healthy salad with a well-balanced spicy tangy dressing and welcome heartiness from the injera.  We’ve adapted the following recipe from Cooking with Imaye to meet our tastes:



  • 1 t berbere
  • 1 sprinkle garlic salt
  • 1 sprinkle ginger powder
  • 1 sprinkle black pepper
  • 1/8 c white wine
  • 1 t lemon juice
  • 1/4 c olive oil

Veggie Injera Mix:

  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/8 red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 carliston pepper, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and minced
  • 1 fresh injera, torn into small pieces
  • 1 c lettuce, chopped into 1 inch pieces (optional)


Prepare the ingredients as described in the Ingredients list

Mix the Sauce ingredients in a large bowl.

Add the Veggie Injera Mix ingredeints and mix to combine well.
