Stuffed Crêpes

I do love making enough food to have leftovers. However, I lose interest in eating the same leftovers more than perhaps twice, so I try to find new ways to jazz my leftovers up and make a different meal out of them.

All of this leftover talk brings me to one of my most favorite “leftover makeover” dishes from my childhood. My grandmother used to always make traditional Persian dishes for lunch. For dinner, she always made lighter dishes which did not involve rice.

 

One of these dishes was khorakeh goosht, or braised meat. The following evening, she always made crêpes and stuffed them with the leftover meat.

I can’t even begin to tell you how delicious these stuffed crêpes are!

A Persian Meal in Just an Hour

Here is the question: is it really possible to make a Persian meal in an hour? The truthful answer to this question is, yes, but it depends on what you are making.  My plan was to make Baghali Polow, rice with fava beans,  in my rice cooker last Friday when I got back home from my mid-morning meeting.  The idea was to stop by the Persian store on my way home Read More
