So basically I had 100% intention to follow a recipe I found online. But..... I didn't. Go figure. I love everything about her idea and recipe. Here is the original recipe by: Gourmande in the Kitchen .
This is what happened and why I am re posting this: I started by following the recipe. As I opened my bag of washed mint and all of a sudden I turned into a 5 year old girl, sitting at the patio table with my dad, eating the simple Persian snack/meal of Noon o panir: Feta cheese with fresh greens (mint, cilantro, marjoram, something like chives, green onions, etc.) I loved it and literally licked the food processor clean with a very content smile. Don't worry I washed my hands and bowl with soap after ;).
I couldn't get myself to add the lemon zest (mostly because I forgot to buy organic lemons). And of course I love garlic so to me it was missing. I needed it to complete the smell of the nono panir rolls my dad would make me as a kid. Then I thought I can hide Kale in this!
So of course all the credit to Groumande in the Kitchen, but here is my version of the recipe.
I served it with a creamy cabbage and carrot salad with apples and quinoa. My 4.5 year old daughter devoured it, my husband enjoyed the flavor combination. I enjoyed it lots. Hope it makes your bellies happy.
Green peas stand out as an environmentally friendly food. Agricultural research has shown that pea crops can provide the soil with important benefits. First, peas belong to a category of crops called "nitrogen fixing" crops.
