Elementary, My Dear Vegan: Ethiopian Wat

Hi everyone! Today’s “Elementary, My Dear Vegan” is from S1E15 (“A Giant Gun, Filled with Drugs”) – Holmes’ former drug dealer comes to him for help when his daughter is kidnapped, and after Holmes and Watson get involved, the kidnapper sends the young woman’s finger to them as a warning. Holmes takes the opportunity to examine it for clues and then shares his findings with Watson.

Holmes: Now, look under the fingernail. Ethiopian Wat. Spiced onion-based stew.
Watson: You can tell that just by looking at it?
Holmes: No, I can tell it by tasting it.

I used the Atakilt Wat recipe from Vegan Richa; it worked out really well and was delicious! I’d planned to make some Injera to go along with it, but I ran out of time today (whoops!), so that’ll be something for next time! 



Leela was my rainy day yoga buddy this morning… 


Peace. :)

  1. Oh... gross. You know the part I mean. Sherlock!!!
    Anyway, I am glad you are eating your Wat out of a bowl and not from underneath the nails of a severed finger.

    1. Yeah, Sherlock tastes things for clues way more often than I'd like, haha! I was much happier enjoying my Wat from a bowl! :)
