By sharing this recipe, I am thanking a long time 98 year old patient of mine who gave me a wonderful cookbook. She's a friend who programmed all the VCR remotes for everyone when we still had VCRs. She's a friend who writes poetry and shares it on her own computer generated cards and notepaper. She's the friend who drives to the Napa Valley, shops at a Fair Trade retailer and gives the gift of "the world of STREET FOOD".
So, in honor of her, I offer the first recipe in the book, lentil wat (stew) from Ethiopia. Thank you Mrs. T.
