Persian food, with its bounteous recipes using fresh herbs, colorful vegetables, aromatic rice dishes and soulful stews & braises is easily adapted for a plant-based diet and lifestyle.

MEZZE SPREAD + COCKTAIL HOUR:

We will start the evening by gathering around in my living room for a lavish spread of plant-based Persian + Mediterranean mezze small bite appetizers. I will also be serving my signature “Persian Persuasion” Cocktails + Mocktails (drinks are complimentary).

MAIN COURSES

After we have had our fill of small bites and getting to meet and chat with the other dinner guests, we will sit down for the main event.

I will be serving one of my signature tahdig crust rice dishes. Tahdig means “bottom of the pot” and is the crunchy shell created around the rice dish. For this particular dinner, I will be serving two classic Persian rice dishes that are both vegan: “Aadas Polo” lentil + saffron rice with carmelized raisins + cranberries served on top and “Bhaagali Polo” fave bean and dill rice.

This rice dish will be paired with a vegan version of a Persian classic “Ghormeh Sabzi”. This savory and tangy dish is a slow-cooked braise of sautteed herbs, beans (kidney + black eyed peas), potatoes, carmelized onions, garlic and dried limes in a deliciously verdant broth.

Rounding out the main courses will be a Chopped Shirazi Salad and a vegan version of the popular Cucumber Yogurt sauce, perfect for drizzling on top of the rice.

DESSERT + PERSIAN TEA SERVICE

We will need a minute to let the lavish meal digest before we move onto dessert. Once we are ready to bring some sweetness into the mix, I will serve a fantastic Persian Bakhlava and a aromatic Vegan Persian Rice Custard called “Yakh Daar Behesht” which translates to “Ice in Paradise”. There will also be a mixed berry salad tossed in an orange blossom + mint sauce for a refreshing and light post meal treat. I will also be serving traditional Persian Black Tea and caffeine-free herbal teas for folks who would enjoy a cup of tea with dessert.
