Albalu Polow (Persian Sour Cherry Rice)

Polow in Persian, pilaf to us, according to Wikipedia, is a Middle Eastern, and Central and South Asian dish that was first mentioned in the histories of Alexander the Great in describing Sogdian hospitality. (Sogdian was an eastern Persian province that may have been the birthplace of Alexander's wife Roxana, now Uzbekistan.) Uzbek plov is considered to be one of the oldest polow/plov rice dishes. It was served to Alexander upon his capture of the Sogdian capital of Marakanda (now Samarkand).

Persian Lentil & Tomato Soup

I was searching for a recipe that mimicked a Lentil & Tomato soup we discovered at a local Persian restaurant, Kabobee's of Atlanta. Apparently there is a well-known restaurant in Chicago called Reza's that serves a similar very popular soup.

Persian Greens, Herbs and Eggs - Kookoo Sabzee
Persian Greens, Herbs and Eggs - Kookoo Sabzee

This is a staple in our vegetarian home. It's also a super healthy dish that I always know my 2 yr old will eat. The recipe below is basic. Normally, you would have more herbs. I usually use a mix of whatever herbs and greens I have on hand - parsely (fresh), mint (fresh or dry), chives, collards, kale, even dandelion greens from my lawn. Just be careful with too much kale or dandelions, as it can make it bitter. This dish is great cold the next day also and is traditionally served with dairy - goat's cheese, sour yoghurt, feta, etc.Submitted by: HEALTHYNILI

Spin & Toss Tableside Arugula, Persian Cucumber & Heirloon Tomatoes & Walnut Salad

I don't always eat a lot of meat, so this is a way for me to get in some protein via nuts and some good healthy oils too. You can substitue FLAX OIL in place of the Olive Oil to amp up your daily dose of ultra healthy Omega Threes, which is what I generally do and I also make this as a main dish and maybe add in a bit of leftover boneless, skinless cooked chicken breast! Yay! But as it stands, this is a Fun Salad to serve when you are sick of your boring diet routine and want to spice things up with a bit of Tableside Flair!! Hey, can we count this bit in as exercise...har har har!!! (And of course you can literally spice it up with hot pepper sauce or dried peppers to your taste! Go wild!)

Note: Feta or Gorganzola or Good Ole Blue Cheese (or any other (salty/savory/sweet???) firm cheese that strikes your fancy and goes with the ingredients...like Peach Gorganzola Cheese (This Trader Joe's Cheese has little peices of Dried Peaches in it and it's GREAT!!!) will work with this recipe. You can also shave some Parm/Reggie onto each plate too after service. Experiement with your party leftovers from your cheese platter....or just grab what's already there on the shelf in the ole pantry or fridge!!!Submitted by: JAYBIRDNM
