Happy New Year, everyone!
I know what you’re thinking – I’m a few months too late, right? Well actually, there’s another New Year I like to celebrate: Persian New Year aka “Nowruz” (pronounced No-rooz). I highly recommend observing this holiday, especially if January 1st didn’t treat you too well and you need to hit restart!
What I love about Nowruz is that it always falls on the first day of spring, March 20th. It gives the holiday such great meaning as it’s symbolic of fresh starts and new beginnings. And recently, I discovered ALOHA, a nutrition and wellness startup that has a collection of healthy recipes. With springtime around the corner, I felt inspired to post one of my favorite light recipes too! With Nowruz just last week, I couldn’t help but think of my mother’s Kookoo Sabzi recipe – it’s like a Persian herb frittata. It’s one of the many traditional dishes served during the holiday, and it’s loaded with nutritious vegetables, herbs, nuts and more. It’s the perfect recipe to share with you all as we leave winter behind!
