Ethiopian Lentil Bowl

A friend gave this recipe to me several years ago, it was from some sort of seasonal cookbook, but sadly I can not remember the title or author.

She was always fascinated with the heritage cookbooks and those small church cookbooks that local small towns and authors would publish.
