Healthy Tikel Gomen (One Pot Potato and Cabbage Dish)

Posted by

Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m
showing you how to make Tikel Gomen which is a healthy Ethiopian cabbage
dish this is actually one of my favorite recipes on my website. Not only is it
healthy it’s also made in just one pot in about 30 minutes. You are going to
love it! Just trust me. If you’re trying to eat healthy this one’s perfect. It’s
naturally vegan, naturally gluten free and so full of flavor.
We’re gonna start by slicing up 4 carrots and I do peel mine first.
Then we’ll halve and thinly slice a white or sweet yellow onion. We’ll get to the
rest of our vegetables later. For now grab a pot and let’s head on over to the
stove. We’re gonna heat 1/3 cup of olive
oil in a large pot over medium-high heat You can reduce it to two tablespoons if
you want but I love the 1/3 cup. Then we’ll add in the onion and carrot and
let that cook for about five minutes Now while that’s cooking I’m gonna cut
up my red potatoes and cabbage. How large or small you cut your potatoes
determines how long this recipe will take to make because, of course, small
potatoes cook a lot faster than larger cut potatoes. So I like to keep mine
small, a very pleasant bite size. I use about five medium red potatoes total.
Then we’ll go ahead and slice up 1 head of green cabbage. Alright, let’s
head on back to the stove. We’re gonna add in 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric which is so good for you.
1 teaspoon of ground cumin and 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger. We’ll give
this a stir and let those spices toast for one to two minutes. Then we’ll add in
our potatoes and our cabbage. Then we’ll give this a stir, then reduce the heat to
medium-low, and we’re gonna pop a lid on to our pot so that it creates a little
oven effect. We’re gonna let this continue to cook
until the potatoes are tender which will take about 15 to 20 minutes but once
again it does depend on the size that you cut your potatoes. Once the potatoes
are tender you are ready to eat! This is a whole
complete meal by itself that’s super filling, however, if you wanted to serve
it up with other things you could cook up some rice or if you’re feeling truly
ambitious you could make some Ethiopian Injera which is a flatbread that’s
made out of teff flour. Also super nutritious and gluten-free but this I just eat it
by itself. It also makes really good leftovers! Thanks for watching! You can

  1. The whole dinner idea sounds tasty and different! I think I'd only add kielbasa or Italian sausage for my family's dinner. Happy New Year!

  2. It sounds and looks great!!! I think that cooked cabbage gives recipes an incredible taste. Can you make it in an Inatant Pot? How long do you need to cook it?? If you add vegetable stock, probably it would also make an incredibly fantastic soup.. i ask this because I am such a soup person….🤗

  3. Happy New Year Rachel! I'm making your pork roast today, the one with the apple juice, and as I said, I will let you know how it turns out, I have some potatoes and carrots and a small head of cabbage so I will make this while the roast is cooking, looks like a nice dish. Thanks again for sharing, take care.

  4. Hey Rachel, I absolutely enjoyed your Sunday Pork Roast AND the Tikel Gomen, I added smoked grilled smoked sausage slices to the Gomen… Home Run with both, thank you buddy, let's have a good new decade! Rest easy!

  5. Oh my that looks sooooo good. I just love cooked cabbage! On the farm, we fried it a lot too. This looks and sounds like a very warm flavorful dish and I like the healthy part too. Thanks for this recipe. Wishing you a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year. Many hugs. Claudia

  6. This looks great. I love most of your recipes. I'd love it if you'd do some research and make some genuine keto recipes…not the "lazy" or "dirty" keto stuff, but the real keto stuff. I'm living the keto lifestyle and I could use your expertise. I'm not a really good cook.
