Persian Immersion

Remember the Persian Immersion cooking class I took last week? I forgot to tell you, earlier in the week, I recreated one of the dishes I learned in the cooking class at home. It was a success! I can cook Persian/Iranian cuisine, who knew? I made herbed meatballs with mast-o-khiar (a cucumber yogurt sauce), served with lavash, an Iranian flat bread (available at Trader Joes). The meal was healthy, pretty easy to make, and delicious!

My fiance was genuinely suprised and delighted I made meatballs for dinner, something I haven't been too fond of in the past, but I think the infusion of herbs (mint + Italian parsley) made the difference. The best part was, since I didn't end up using all of the ground beef in the meatballs, so last night I was able to polish it off in some quick burritos. Way to use all of my resources, huh?

P.S. Now that I've opened the door to Persian food, I've been perusing out other cooking blogs that feature this type of cuisine, one I'm really enjoying is My Persian Kitchen, check it out!
