Kookoo Sabzi 

I've included this recipe in the main course section, but I love cold leftovers for breakfast as well. Like Italian frittata, insanely aromatic from all the herbs and packed with proteins. A specially for Norooz (the Persian New Year) because it is green and thus symbolizes growth and spring, it can also be served all year round.

Traditionally, prepared with eggs, I have a delicious veganised and gluten-free version.


✅ 150g chickpea flour
✅ 12g psyllium husk
✅ 20g nutritional yeast
✅ 400ml water
✅ 2 table spoons vinegar

✅ 30g walnuts
✅ 2 tablespoons of barberries ( zereshk).
