African Food Q&A

 

AFRICAN FOOD

 

Q. Is Ethiopian food vegetarian?

 

 

Q.  I'm a vegetarian, and a friend told me that I should try Ethiopian food- but I thought that that's got meat in it.  Am I right, or is she right?

 

A.  You are right- mostly.  Many Ethiopian stews, called 'wat', are meat-based.  It is possible, though, to have a full Ethiopian meal while enjoying meat-free dishes.  Ethiopians, in fact, have many days when it is customary to eat vegetarian food only for the whole day.  If you are the type who doesn't mind that people around you are eating meat, then certainly give Ethiopian food a try.  If you are very strict vegan, though, and don't want boiled eggs or beef anywhere near the dishes you'll be eating from, stick to restaurants that cater to this.
