Recipe for International Flavor: Eritrean-Style Food

Austin says the number one thing for athletes is the flavor of their food. “The most flavorful food often comes from cultural dishes that provide unique spices,” she adds. Austin’s favorites include Injera (Ethiopian flatbread) with either Tsebhi derho (spicy chicken) or Tsebhi sega (spicy minced meat).

Think of this Teff Injera Bread with Carrot-Ginger Chutney for your next international food venture.

Also try, African Chicken in a Spicy Red Sauce for a flavor-infused, high-protein meal.
