Niter Kibbeh Ghee

These Ethiopian Collard Greens are cooked in Niter Kibbeh Ghee. This clarified butter from Ahara Rasa adds flavor from fresh garlic, ginger, onions and a variety of spices. I’m currently work in the kitchen that produces this ghee here in Portland, Oregon and I can tell from first hand experience, it is some of the best quality ghee I’ve seen. #notsponsored #paidinghee

All the herbs and spices that are slowly cooked into the butter are organic and fresh. This flavor produces the most amazing smell while cooking in the kitchen and I use it on anything from veggies to meat and seafood.

If you don’t have this very specific flavor of ghee, you can use normal ghee, olive oil or any type of cooking oil. Add your own spices to give the greens some flavor, I like using garlic, ginger, red chili flakes; you really can’t go wrong!
