Atakilt Wat - Ethiopian Vegetable Stew
I don't eat nearly enough Ethiopian food but when I do, I always get Atakilt Wat, a gloriously spiced combo of cabbage, carrots and potatoes.

But it was Mardi Gras that sparked the idea to make it so I'll still give credit where it's due. And it is DELICIOUS.
