  • Brief Description

    This is a classic gluten free Persian dish is both healthy and delicious. The flavors are robust yet light. If you can locate Barberries its well worth the effort to include it as it provides a wonderfully tart addition to the dish. The recipe below works from the traditionally included herbs in the Persian dish but really you can mix and match with any herbs you have in your refrigerator. This dish works well served with a salad or a side of roasted potatoes—or as a sandwich (with a little dijon mustard or fig jam!)
