Eating from the same plate is one of the most common dietary social customs in Ethiopia. The custom also carries strong significance in Ethiopian social culture.

If one Ethiopian (let’s say Mr. A) is already eating in the restaurant when his buddies enter the restaurant, they all wash their hands, order their share at the counter, go back to Mr A’s table, and eat together with Mr A no matter how small Mr A’s food is left. It is also quite common for friends to order all their shares to arrive on one big plate, which usually comes with different dipping sauces.
The other alternative is removing the existing empty plate, and putting the newly arrived order in place at the middle of the group and resume eating all together while chatting, laughing and discussing about life, business, education, religion, culture etc… When the bill arrives, they either share the bill or one of the members with higher earning pays the entire bill and they leave the restaurant.Paying for one another is also one of the most common dietary social culture in Ethiopia.

Inviting someone during lunch, dinner or coffee/tea hours is one of the regular customs commonly exercised in Ethiopia. When one goes from one corner of the country to another, there is always warm welcome and smiles even when they do not have anything to offer.

How much do you know about Ethiopian Sociable food?

Posted by: | Posted on: November 25, 2017

Experts figure that it is not only what we are eating that matters for our wellbeing but also how we eat. Ethiopia is one of the countries tend to emphasize eating as a social occasion and as a blessed time for relaxation or celebration to be enjoyed with loved ones. Ethiopia have a distinctly communal-style of eating. Enjera and wat (sauce) are laid out on large platters and groups crowd around to share from the same dish. Ethiopians eat with their hands, tearing off chucks of Enjera to pick up spoonsful of spicy stew. It is also customary for Ethiopians to feed each other in this way (presumably so companions can sample wat dishes that are out of reach on the other side of the platter).

Drop by the north side market of Fredericton every weekend and enjoy your favourite of Ethiopian dishes.

Did you know Ethiopian coffee Traditionally performed by the lady of a household as a mark of respect and of great social importance among Ethiopians? The coffee ceremony is as much about the specific preparation as it is a culture. Friends and neighbours will gather at all hours of the day to share local news and gossip over the steaming hot cups, and imbibers will come and go as cups are distributed out by the woman preparing them.

The brewing process may be different from any you’ve seen before. First, green (unroasted) coffee beans are carefully browned in a shallow pan over a flame, followed grounding by hand with a mortar and pestle style contraption. The grounds are then boiled with hot water in a clay pot called a jebena, and served in tiny cups, typically alongside freshly popped popcorn. Often the grounds are brewed three times and enjoyed over lovely conversation with friends/family and neighbours.

Hana Ethiopian Enjera at the North side of Fredericton

Posted by: | Posted on: November 12, 2017

Enjera is not only a kind of bread, it is also an eating utensil. Enjera is spongy, sour flatbread  used to scoop up meat and vegetable stews. Enjera is made with teff  if possible which is, a tiny, round grain that flourishes in the highlands of Ethiopia. While teff is very nutritious, it contains practically no gluten. This makes teff ill-suited for making raised bread, however injera still takes advantage of the special properties of yeast. A short period of fermentation gives it an airy, bubbly texture, and also a slightly sour taste. If there is no teff Enjera can be made with wheats, rice, corn and others.

Posted by: | Posted on: October 30, 2017

Hana Ethiopian food is inviting you to the morth side market in Fredericton during the weeknds and try some healthy Ethiopian food including Lentiles.

Lelely Lentils have become a tasty staple in my diet. Low in Calories and high in nutrition, Lentils are the  perfect legume to eat in the summer in salads, spreads, for crudité and crackers, and as an item on a vegetariandinner plate.

I always gravitate towards foods that are easy to cook, and lentils are a hassle-free compliment to any meal. Nutty and earthy in flavor, lentils have a high nutritional value that anyone can benefit from by incorporating this healthy legume into their diet.

Eat lentils and reap their health benefits including:

1 Lower Cholesterol

Lentils help to reduce blood cholesterol since it contains high levels of soluble fiber. Lowering your cholesterol levels reduces your risk of heart disease and stroke by keeping your arteries clean.

2 Heart Health

Several studies have shown that eating high fiber foods like lentils reduces your risk of heart disease. Lentils are also a great source of folate and magnesium, which are big contributors to heart health. Folate lowers your homocysteine levels, a serious risk factor for heart disease. Magnesium improves blood flow, oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Low levels of magnesium have been directly associated with heart disease, so eating lentils will keep your heart happy!

3. Digestive Health

Insoluble dietary fiber found in lentils helps prevent constipation and other digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome and diverticulosis.

4. Stabilized Blood Sugar

Adding to the many benefits of fiber, soluble fiber traps carbohydrates, slowing down digestion and stabilizing blood sugar levels. This can be especially helpful for those with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia.

5. Good Protein

Of all legumes and nuts, lentils contain the third-highest levels of protein. 26 percent of lentil’s calories are attributed to protein, which makes them a wonderful source of protein for vegetarians and vegans.

6. Increases Energy

Lentils increase steady, slow-burning energy due its fiber and complex carbohydrates. Lentils are also a good source of iron, which transports oxygen throughout your body and is key to energy production and metabolism.

7. Weight Loss

Although lentils include all these beneficial nutrients like fiber, protein, minerals and vitamins, they are still low in calories and contain virtually no fat. One cup of cooked lentils only contains about 230 calories, but still leaves you feeling full and satisfied.

9 Improve Digestion

As lentils contain high levels of dietary fiber, it improves digestion if consumed regularly. It also helps in easy bowel movement, resulting in decreased constipation.

10 Counteracting Cancer

Studies conducted by Elvira González De Mejía & Valentin I. Prisecaru at the University of Illinois have found that plant lectins, a separate type of plant protein originating from foods like lentils, wheat, peanuts, peas, and soybeans have a great influence on cancer cells. Research studies have shown that these lectins cause cytotoxicity and apoptosis, which means that they have a great potential to control cancer growth.
