This recipe reminds me of the first food that I ate when I came to Canada for the first time. It was so good ! That is the reason why I want it to share with people, my favorite dish, with a new special ingredient.
Back in the day my grandma always used to cook macaroni for me, so I thought it’d be inspirational for me to come up with a similar recipe but with a little change to it to include the berbere spice, so that’s when it came to me to make a skillet cheesy beef and veggie macaroni.
Usually when my parents are at work I have to cook for my little brothers. Obviously, not being a professional, the first idea that comes to mind is to make pasta. One day while making my usual recipe, I had the idea of adding peanut butter. Surprisingly, my little brothers loved it ! It was a great way to show them that vegetarian food can be delicious without it being a salad :)
We used this recipe, paired with our yogurt dips, as an easy way to show case our spices to the Dragons Den producers. We had to make something quickly in the morning before our auditions and these took max 10 minutes!! You can also make the chips a day in advance and they are good to go the next day.
