Kuku Sabzi amazing Green Omelette from Persia for family brunch

kuku sabzi

Kuku sabzi – a perfect Sunday breakfast or brunch from Leno Regushadze, the author of the Crazy Cucumber blog: nutritious and loaded with vitamins.

Kuku Sabzi is a green omelette with spinach and herbs, the Azerbaijani dish with a sauce made of yogurt and garlic. Spinach, cilantro, green onion, mint, dill, parsley – an excellent set of vitamins.

This dish came to Azerbaijani cuisine from Persia. It is also popular in Iran. Kukyu sabzi – literally, from Farsi, translates as a dish of eggs with greens. And you are not deceived! Sometimes this dish is served cold and used as an appetizer.

You can try both variants and tell me in the comments which one you liked better.
