Love life, eat well and cook PERSIAN
I’m always busy in my kitchen cooking up some gastronomic feast or other. Mainly but not exclusively, a range of tried and tested mouth-watering recipes from Iran. Here on my blog you will find everything you need to know about Iranian cooking all in one place. Not only recipes galore but nutritional information, medicinal properties of the ingredients you will be using, tips and short cuts: the myths of Iranian cooking is made easy with step by step instructions and pictures and using ingredients available across the globe and at most supermarkets.
When I first tried to look for the English names of herbs used in Persian recipes , I couldn’t always find them . So I have added several posts about Sabzi, or Persian herbs: what they are in farsi and with their English names, their nutritional values, which sabzi to use for different recipes, Sabzi Khordan, how to prepare and freeze them in advance and how to grow your own. I hope you find it useful.
I have coeliac disease ( an allergy to gluten found in wheat, barley and oats) and have found that almost all Persian cooking can be gluten-free. When I come across a recipe containing gluten I have adapted those dishes with substitutes which have not detracted from the taste of the dish. Over the years I have had to check out every part of my diet and find adaptations to compensate for my allergy and I have gained a considerable wealth of knowledge about what I eat and feed my family.
Eating well is vital for a healthy mind and body. Persian food is perfect for me with my allergy but it is also one of the healthiest diets I know. It’s well a balanced diet , packed full with essential nutrients from all food groups and I can eat and eat to my hearts content and not gain weight!
What ever you cook, cook from your heart with love. Love life, eat well and cook Persian.
