Traditional Herb salad with bread and cheese OR Sabzi Khordan سبزی خوردن با نان و پنیر

In Persian food table you will always have vegetable or herbs salad in summer time and different types of pickles in winter season. These salads are made of fresh fruits or vegetables that usually housewives are buying straightly fresh from vegetable grocery.

In my country when we buy herbs, it is always selling in big bunches of very fresh herbs ( Sabzi khordan) . Popular herbs or Sabzi khordan in our Persian table includes: chives تره, radishتربجه. scallion پیازچه. mint نعنا, dill شوید, basil ریحان. parsley جعفری, coriander گشنیز, tarragon  ترخون, and watercress شاهی.

You need to pick herbs from stalks and then put them in a big bowl of cold water and let soak for 10 minutes and then drain in a colander. You can keep them fresh for few days in the fridge by wrapping herbs in a cotton towel.

You can serve these beautiful green and aromatic herbs in a basket or platter. You can have all these herbs or just get herbs you fancy, I am sure once you eat, you will not stop and eat more and more specially when you serve herbs with warm and fresh breads and feta cheese :).
These herbs are enough flavoured that no need to any dressing.

در سفره ی ایرانی معمولن سبزی خوردن و سالاد در تابستان و انواع ترشی ها در زمستان دیده می شوند. خانم‌های خانه دار مواد اولیه برای تهیه سالاد ها و سبزیجات را مستقیمن از بازار میوه و سبزی خریداری می کنند. در کشور من سبزی و میوه در مقادیر و بسته های بزرگ خریداری می شود. سبزی خوردن معمولن شامل: تره – تربچه – شوید– ریحان – نعنا– پیازچه – جعفری – گشنیز– شاهی و تلخون می باشد.
پس از خریداری سبزی ها آن‌ها را پاک کرده و شسته می شوند. سبزی خوردن را می‌توان داخل یک دستمال نخی ریخته و برای چند روز در یخچال به صورت تر و تازه نگه داری کرد. سبزی خوردن بسیار سالم و خوش عِطر می‌باشد وبه همین علت نیازی به هیچ نوع سس ندارد.
سبزی خوردن را می‌توان به همراه غذا سرو کرد یا برای عصرانه با نان داغ و تازه و پنیر بسیار لذیذ می باشد.




Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am an archaeologist, photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
