Persian herbs logo








Aash, a vegetarian dish, is generally translated as Persian soup. This is the most basic form of Persian soup that can be easily converted to more elaborate dishes by simply adding other ingredients like prunes to make Aash-e aloo , pomegranate to make Aash-e anar or plain yogurt to make Aash-e must . Once you know this basic recipe, you can create other delicious Aashes (or Persian soups) just as easily by adding the right ingredients at the right time.

100 g Rice (4 oz)
50 g Yellow split peas (2 oz)
