How it's made

  • We start by soaking Iranian saffron in water to release it's color and full flavor. We then stir in the saffron into the soaked basmati rice together with pan fried onions.
  • The stew is made with butternut squash, sweet poatoes and green lentils that we gently cook together with our home made veggie stock and coconut milk.   
  • We spice the stew with ground cumin, turmeric, and chili before quickly adding the spinach.
