Kuku Sabzi Recipe Notes:

Kuku sabzi can also be cooked on the stove. I have never made this dish over the stove as I find baking is easier.
Persian cuisine is very rich as it is hearty and is full of fresh ingredients. This meal is also great with lamb.  
This dish is packed with fresh herbs which makes it high. This kuku dish is also rich in minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. It contains healthy fats, and also provides  Vitamin K, Vitamin A, calcium, potassium, magnesium, selenium, and iron to name a few.
