Kuku Sabzi: Persian’s festive, herby, and flavor-packed take on frittata

The perfect crisp to an open-faced omelette done Persian style. This omelette is loaded with almost every herb under the sun including parsley, chives and dill. Everything is fried up using extra virgin olive oil and fresh free-range eggs, then topped off with a generous serving of feta cheese melted to perfection.

What is Kuku?
A traditional Persian omelet that is typically served at Nowruz (Persian New Year) – the herbs symbolizing rebirth, and the eggs symbolizing fertility.

  • 2 eggs
  • A few sprigs of parsley, finely chopped

  • 1 frond of dill, chopped
5 sprigs of chive, chopped

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 4 tbsp feta cheese

How to make it
