Sunday night supper: Kookoo Sabzi

Natasha Asselstine Nutrition | Kookoo Sabzi

For the past year, I’ve got into the habit of preparing specific meals on specific days of the week. I find it helps me stay organized, requires less thinking on the spot, and keeps my favourite meals on constant rotation.

On Mondays, I make a big pot of our favourite lentil stew (a version of this) so it’s something I can easily warm up from the fridge in a pinch. On Saturdays, we often pull out a recipe book and make something new.

Since Spring, I’ve been making kookoo sabzi (like a Persian-style frittata) every Sunday night. It’s the perfect light and delicious meal that’s super simple to make, so there isn’t much fussing during the last few hours we have left of the weekend.
