    Yet more Iranian food..

    Primal Fuel
    For those un-aware, 'yet more' implies I have posted Iranian food before, 'Herb Omlette' being the recipe. This one is another egg based recipe, called (clear your throat) 'Mirza Ghassemi'. After spitting out the phlegm, read on for ingredients:

    Serves 2
    2 Aubergine
    4 Eggs
    50g butter
    6 Cloves garlic
    Onion
    Turmeric+Pepper to taste,
    Blanched tomato

    -Bake the aubergine until the skin hardens up and it goes squishy on the inside.
    -Wait till it cools, (or burn your hands) then scrape the flesh and put it in a suitable bowl to mash it.
    -Mash it.
    -Melt butter and fry onions and garlic till it goes translucent
    -Add aubergine, tomato and spices and fry over low heat for about 5 minutes
    -Add the eggs and stir gently until they just start to solidify.

    Serve with salad, or vegetables.

    BTW, not that I think you obliged to respond in the comments, but would more people appreciate Middle eastern inspired recipes here? A lot of all proper middle eastern cuisine is paleo/primal, and should always be made with fresh ingredients.

    Heck yeah, post as many Middle Eastern recipes as you like. Middle Eastern food rocks.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Please do post. I love Middle Eastern spices particularly turmeric.

    Any good lamb or goat recipes would be wonderful.

    So is this like soft scrambled eggs with eggplant and tomato? It seems like a great quick weeknight meal, so long as the eggplant can be roasted in advance and stored in the frig for a day or two. I would love more Iranian meals as my family is much more likely to warm up to something new that is genuinely ethnic. I think it seems like less of a "trick" to them.

    Definitely post!!! We just made Persian Rhubarb Pork tonight--we have tons of rhubarb growing and i wanted to primalize it, not make it into sweets. It was wonderful--stew pork, mint leaves, parsley, lemon, turmeric, saffron, rhubarb.
    I would LOVE more middle eastern recipes!
