Recipes

Herb Frittatas on plate

Fresh Herb Frittata (Kuku Sabzi)This is a delicious traditional Persian fresh herb frittata that my family has been making for decades, probably centuries. It's got fewer eggs than the usual frittata, more herbs, nuts, and spices, making it sturdy. You can actually slice it up and pick them up to eat by hand. These are excellent warm out the pan, but even better cold (and leftover)! I love these for summertime outdoor parties. My favourite way to eat them is in pita bread with Greek yogurt slathered on.
