2 each garlic cloves, crushed
1 cup potatoes, cubed
2 cup carrots, diced
2 cup green beans, chopped
1/2 tbsp berbere

1/2 cup coconut milk
1 salt & pepper
1 cilantro, chopped
Heat ghee or vegetable oil with the whole cloves over low heat. When
hot, add the onions & garlic & saute, stirring occasionally, for a
few moments. Add the carrots & potatoes & continue to saute for 5
minutes, stir to prevent sticking. Add the green beans & saute for
just a few more minutes. Slowly stir in the coconut milk. Use only
as much as you need to create a thick sauce: the vegetables should
not be swimming in milk. Carefully bring to a boil, reduce heat &
simmer until the vegetables are cooked, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir
occasionally otherwise the milk & vegetables will burn. Garnish with
cilantro. Serve with an Ethiopian Lentil stew or with an Indian dal
to mix cuisines, & bread. If you prefer the vegetables to be hotter,
add more berbere. It is best if this dish is made ahead of time &
then left to let the flavours marry. In place of cilantro, use fresh

* Read food labels
Be sceptical of food packaging that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the reverse of the tin or packet. Some are only marginally lowered and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
