My mother-in-law is Persian!!! Oh my! Not only does she have the most entricately beautiful Persian features but oh my, oh my does her Persian food taste beautiful!!!=)
What our family enjoys so much about Persian Cuisine is that Persian food's basis is fresh garlic and onion and so many other fresh vegetables! Traditionally, they usually pair with a cucumber yogurt dip to eat with veggies!
Well, even though most Persian families back in Iran would probably faint at the thought of replacing their creamy yogurt with an alternative BUT our plant-based, LIVE eating family has found a creamy, tasty alternative to the traditional Persian yogurt! Gasp at the thought! =) My Persian mother smiled when she tasted this recipe and I have a feeling you will, as well!
