Kuku Sabzi (Persian Herb Frittata)

Updated: Jul 22, 2022

There are many different Kuku recipes in Iran and the most famous one is Kuku Sabzi. Sabzi translate to herbs in farsi and as you can imagine this recipe is full of fresh herbs. Kuku is kinda similar to frittata but contain less eggs and other ingredients are the stars of the dish.

Some popular Kukus are:

Kuku sabzi (eggs with fresh herbs)

Kuku sibzamini (eggs with potato)

Kuku Kado (eggs with zucchini)

Kuku Sabzijat (eggs with vegetables)

Kuku sabzi is one of the main dishes that serves in Nowruz. Many people makes Kuku with frozen or dried herbs but I personally never do that as long as I can find fresh herbs.

This recipe is perfect for cleaning out your fridge when your precious fresh herbs are start to goin bad. I used parsley, cilantro, dill and dried fenugreek here, but you can also add spinach, lettuce or even leek!
