Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food -- SOLD OUT

Hello! I'm so proud to announce my newest cooklet, Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food, is complete! Please start knitting booties, because this is the closest I'm gonna come to having a biological baby.


This 86 page recipe zine has the power to transform you into an Ethiopian cooking maven, and if you already have mad Ethiopian skills and know-how, you'll find recipes to make magical dishes you've never seen or tasted before.

The recipes are 100% vegan and gluten-free, and all but a few can easily be soy-free as well. Chapters include: Ethiopian Info, Essentials, Appetizers, Salads, Sides, Allecha Recipes (mild stews), W'et Recipes (spicy stews), Mixin' it Up!, Leftovers and General Info.

  2. MUST HAVE! Somehow I missed this when reading your blog the other day, but I didn't miss the review on The Odd Couple Eats (who I just discovered). Think I'll get it at the end of the week as a "just got paid" treat ;)

  3. YAY! I just bought one, it looks SO good! I've had a little bit of Ethiopian food before and LOVED it (I've made my own teff injera before and it was incredible). Now I am really looking forward to making my own gf vegan, I am so excited!

  5. I'm drooling just looking at the pics...and I'm not vegetarian! I am a confirmed cookbook junkie and actually do eat a fair amount of vegetarian meals (I have a block of firm tofu and an eggplant waiting in the fridge right now)so - Bookmarked and will order as soon as I refresh my paypal acct. Have you looked into what publishing through Amazon will cost you?

  14. I am so happy to have found this site! My adopted son (now an adult) is from Ethiopia. We live in a small town with no Ethiopian restaurants and this mama doesn't know how to cook the great food of this wonderful country! Thank you so much for this collection. I am getting a copy for me and one for him!

    Be blessed!

  16. I was so excited to get this zine early, I thought sending it to Europe would take a lot longer and then I got it after two days. Yay.
    I already tried some of the recipes, and loved them all. I am really looking forward to trying the injera fakeouts to go along all the other dishes. Can you hear my excitement? Thanks a lot for these recipes!

  24. Dear Kittee,
    I just ordered a copy of your inspiring cookbook and cannot wait to give all of the recipes a try. It is the most beautiful looking book I have ever seen and I am very excited about it ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ After I send the money it said they were delivered to David Coen - is that correct or did I send them the wrong way?

    Best,
    Andreas

  28. This looks great! I want to mention that my company - Small Small - is just launching. We focus on bringing delicious, vegan, and gluten-free Ethiopian spices and sauces to the US and sharing a portion of every sale to teach modern ag in the region. We're starting with berbere and a sauce inspired by awaze for those who would like to try making Ethiopian at home! http://bit.ly/WSXk5W

    Our website is www.buysmallsmall.com for more information as well.

  29. Hi, I am a naturopathic doctor managing a family with different food intolerance and working to get us all onto the same foundation diet of no gluten, no dairy, no eggs, no soy. I am excited to get your recipe book as I love Ethiopian food! The big concern people are mentioning to me is that it would be difficult to get enough protein into the day with these restrictions and no meat. How do your recipes add up for protein content when you take out the soy?
    Thanks,

    1. Only a couple of the recipes cannot be made without soy, the majority of the booklet is lentil/legume or vegetable based recipes. Do you know about Indian pudla and socca? Incorporating chickpea flour into some recipes might really help. You can even use it to make Burmese tofu, which is a soy-free chickpea based product.

    1. Hi Shasta!
      Do you live in the US and do you have access to the kinds of spices and pulses/lentils commonly found in Indian food? There are a few that might be harder to find like fenugreek seed and urad dal, but those might be the hardest.
