The beauty of this dish specifically is that it is so versatile. For my vegetarian and vegan friends and followers you can omit the meat and switch the vegetables round to your liking. Just keep the core spicing and water content the same and you cant go far wrong.
I love the crisp clear mornings and chilly nights that have arrived along with Halloween this week. We have always celebrated Halloween, even as a small child my mum used to throw the best Halloween Parties.
Khroest Ghemeh, as all Iranians will testify to, is a completely indulgent stew with chips and served with rice! So carb dodgers be warned! It is worth having an extra long run for though, just to indulge in this. When we have Persian Dinner Parties, my carb loving husband always asks me ‘can you make the one with chips?’
I am back! Apologies for being quiet over the last two weeks. My boys and I decided to take a much needed holiday and took a break from everything. It was absolute bliss! I do love escaping every now and again and switching off entirely but I also love coming home, especially to this lovely autumnal weather. It makes me crave massive bowls of comfort food packed with oodles of flavour!
I remember the first time I made this I was 18 and had just moved into my own house. My Dad had gifted me a pressure cooker for my birthday and I decided to try to make Ghormeh Sabzi….
The first time I tried this dish was on my birthday 6 or 7 years ago when my lovely husband spent a day cooking for me…
