African Teff Cakes w/ Fava and Wild Mushroom Wat, Carrot-Chile Chutney and Cucumber Raita
* from "Artful Vegan" -- the teff (an african grain) cakes didn't quite turn out (I think they left something out of the recipe) but the top half was pretty tasty, so we just used that. The fava bean and wild mushroom (oyster, shiitake, baby portobellos) mixture with spices (cumin, corriander, fenugreek, cardamom seeds, cinnamon stick, nutmeg and cloves -- toasted and ground) was fabulous. The raita and chutney were nice counterparts to the dish.
