guess the dish 8/16/08 answer!

There were a lot of good guesses (curry, mystery stew) and several bad guesses (barf)...the REAL answer is Ghorme Sabzi! Ghorme Sabzi is a Persian dish made up of a mixture of greens (fenugreek, parsley, coriander), kidney beans, onions, saffron water, and dried Persian lemons. I've had this dish at least a dozen times because it's Rod's favorite so he always used to bring it back to school with him after breaks, and I finally decided to take the plunge and try it out myself!

Prep time took about an hour and then the stew had to simmer on the stove for nearly 4 hours. It was SO worth it though. It tasted, smelled, and looked like the real thing! Hooray! I love when food experiments turn out fabulous.

Is it too late to guess "barf"?
