  • Summary

    Kuku sabzi (Persian frittata) tend to have less eggs than the typical fritter or omelet. They can be slightly sweet with dates and dried rose, or savory, like the one below. Try not to be diverted from all the greens that are suggested for this recipe. You really can use whatever hearty greens and herbs you like. It’s the ideal clean-out-the-fridge recipe.

    Ingredients

    • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • 1 medium leek, white and pale-green parts only, finely chopped
    • 5 large eggs
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
    • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped cilantro
    • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped dill
    • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped parsley
    • 1 tablespoon dried fenugreek leaves
