I made my own Berbere Spice mix in a previous post. This spice blend is quite hot but the background flavours to the heat are very nice. I thought the spice and complex flavours would go well with potatoes and fired up the Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker to grill some  Berbere Grilled Potatoes.

I cubed two medium potatoes, chopped 125 ml (1/2 cup) of onion and sliced a garlic clove.

I put those in an aluminum pie plate and tossed them with the olive oil and Berbere Spice.

I covered the pan in foil and put it in the smoker that had been preheated to 350 F. You could also do this in a 350 F oven. This is one time an oven is just as good as the food is sealed in foil and won’t get any smoke. However, I was cooking a salmon on the smoker anyway.

The Verdict

These were tasty with a nice heat and complexity from the Berbere spice. She Who Must Be Obeyed said they were too spicy but she was wrong. Just don’t tell her I said she was.
