Shiro is widely-used throughout Habesha culture, especially during fasting seasons such as Lent. The complex mix of sun-dried, finely-ground chickpeas, chili peppers, and organic herbs has been a staple in Ethiopian cuisine for centuries.
Brundo’s Shiro spicy legume blend adds modern twists by incorporating notes of berbere, shallots, red onions, ginger, garlic, and sacred basil. Enjoy the velvety texture of our appetizing Shiro blend either in the orthodox split-pea stew or sprinkle a teaspoon or two into a vegetable dish or soup for a rich twist to your favorite recipes.
