Persian Fresh Herb and Egg Casserole

Marsha Gardner


My brother-in-law's mother made this one time when we were all visiting and I couldn't get over the taste. Mak had to translate the recipe from Farsi to English so I could have it. I am so glad that he did.

How to Make Persian Fresh Herb and Egg Casserole


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

    In a large bowl, beat the eggs well and add the baking powder, flour, allspice, salt and pepper. Fold in the garlic, scallions, parsley, coriander, dill, fenugreek and barberries. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  2. Place 2 tablespoons of the melted butter into an 8-inch-square baking dish. Pour in egg and herb mixture. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Brush with the remaining melted butter, and return to the oven about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. The casserole may be served from the baking dish or inverted onto a serving platter by loosening the edges with a knife. Cut into 2- inch squares. Serve with cucumber-yogurt sauce. My Ab Duq Khiar Dip (Yogurt Dip)is posted.
  4. ADIVEH:1/2 teaspoon cumin,
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
