Eritrean food is a rarer relative of the Ethiopian cuisine that one more commonly finds in restaurants in Toronto. While sharing many ingredients and spices, it also features many unique dishes all its own. For this dinner, Selam Teclu of Village Kanteen presents a unique combination Eritrean-inspired flavours and quality local ingredients.
Sush-jera: Eritrean-Fusion Rolls
Black cumin and cilantro infused edamame (Vegan)
Shirtimo (lentil and chickpea flour spread) with goat cheese (Vegetarian)
Spicy pumpkin seed and callaloo with topped with crispy tuna (Pescetarian)
Choose any kind or get a mix of all 3
Spreads come rolled in homemade millet and teff sourdough flatbread taita (injera). Served with mixed greens with enoki mushroom and shredded carrots, with a sesame-maple dressing.
(gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options)
There will also be containers of all the spreads available for sale to take home. If you would like to take home Selam’s gluten-free pure teff or millet & teff flatbread, please contact her to place an order.
