Ghormeh sabzi, or the Bean Baaz as we like to refer to it as, is the single most iconic dish of Persian cuisine. A medley of Middle Eastern herbs, from parsley to dill to fenugreek, go perfectly together with red beans, diced mushrooms and hints of sun dried lime. There's a reason this dish has been around for a couple hundred years.
If you guessed that sabzi means herbs in Farsi, you're right! Look at you learning Farsi so quickly! Jam packed with fenugreek, parsley and dill, ghormeh sabzi is considered one of the healthiest and fragrant Persian dishes
Depending on the region in Iran, ghormeh sabzi is prepared using a different type of bean. The most common bean used is the red bean, which adds plant-based protein to our vegetarian take on this Persian classic
SUN DRIED LIMES
Sun dried what?! That's right - sun dried limes! An ingredient unique to Persian cuisine, these crushed dried limes, known as limu omani, provide ghormeh sabzi with a very subtle sour taste, contrasting well with the stew's herbs
