Kookoo Persian Herb Omelette
We made dinner with friends on Friday who said they were making a type of Persian frittata. That's about the closest description in English (omelette or quiche might work too), but it's actually called 'kookoo'.
Here are a couple of recipes I looked up:
Our Persian friends said that basically any sort of green herbs -- finely minced or chopped in a food processor -- can be used to make Kookoo.
I cooked some patty pan squash, quartered and sautéed in butter with garlic & onion, plus chili flakes and fresh squeezed orange.
I made two different bean salads. Chickpeas with mint, lime zest, lime juice, rice vinegar, olive oil and salt.
The black beans were with cumin, fresh parsley, orange zest, orange juice, chili powder, olive oil & salt.
