Traditional Iranian New Year Dish
I’ve taken this recipe from my very old and favourite “A Book of Middle Eastern Food” by Claudia Roden. Beautiful fresh, green & light…to eat with a crunchy green leafy salad…or just as finger food…a fitting antidote to Xmas excess.
Simple fresh ingredients:
Leek, green onion, spinach, parsley, tarragon and chives are the ones I used but others may be used instead- 8 eggs, salt & pepper. I also added a few chopped walnuts as suggested.
Chop all very finely and add to beaten eggs.
Pour into a baking dish and bake in a very moderate oven under foil for 30 mins ,then another 15-20 mins until golden on top.
Slice & serve hot or cold.
