Kookoo Sabzi is one of my favorite Persian dishes. This tasty herbal omelette is not only easy to make, it also provides tons of vitamins and a satisfying "full-feeling" without unnecessary carbs or meat.

Suitable for 3 - 4 persons.

Tip: I love to eat Kookoo Sabzi with a bit of bread and a thin layer of honey.  It's hard to believe that something as sweet as honey would fit well with herbs and eggs, but trust me - it's fantastic!

Alternatively, it is often eaten with feta and walnuts.
