Sit Down to Sabzi

Share

Ancient cultures travelled down the likes of the Euphrates and Nile rivers carrying herbs and spreading knowledge of their healing qualities.

Ancient cultures travelled down the likes of the Euphrates and Nile rivers carrying herbs and spreading knowledge of their healing qualities. From these beginnings, herbs have become indispensable, both in the kitchen and the medicine cabinet.

Persian for "green," sabzi (saab-ZI) describes the traditional use of fresh herbs to accompany all meals. Sabzi is a huge bowl of fresh mint, basil, cilantro, parsley, green onion, red radish, tarragon–all fresh leafy herbs except sage, which is too strong–that you simply eat with fresh bread, feta cheese, salad and a vegetable ragout. Lay out all these dishes and take a bite of this and a bite of that. You’ll soon discover herb heaven.
Recipes serve four to five.
