Khoresh Gheymeh: A Traditional Iranian Dish with Meat and Yellow Split Peas

It's name is قیمه "Gheymeh!" خورش قیمه Khoresh-e Gheymeh! I will not call this dish a stew, or a casserole, or anything else for that matter.

This is a simple but very tasty dish that, for me, not only satisfies my hunger, but warms my heart and soothes my occasional longing for home, even after all these years. However, as…

Kabab Koobideh - Persian Grilled Ground Lamb On Skewers

I just couldn't let my third summer of blogging pass by without posting a recipe for the internationally-known Iranian dish: kabab koobideh/kabob kubide.

It's best to let the chicken marinate overnight for the best result. For a moist, juicy and flavorful joojeh kabob, marinate…
