Made from herbs, kidney beans and lamb, deep green Gormeh sabzi satisfies two Persian flavour obsessions:
It’s sour and full of herbs. The stew is seasoned with dried limes, Limoo Omani in Farsi.
These limes are extra intense and sour, with a bittersweet taste that gives the stew a unique flavour.
The other constant in Gormeh Sabzi is fenugreek leaves, a taste unfamiliar to most westerners. Other herbs include parsley, coriander and scallions.
