Ashe Sabzi Shirazi Recipe – Delicious and Nutritious

Ashe sabzi Shirazi (Shirazi vegetable soup) is a traditional Iranian dish with vegetables, meat, and various cooked beans. Tarragon plays an important role in this dish and should be used.

1. To prepare this delicious soup, we must first prepare the meat of this dish. At this stage, slice the onions and fry them in a pot or pressure cooker. After the onions are golden, add the meat and spices.

Fry the meat and onion in a pressure cooker and add turmeric and black pepper. After roasting a little:

  • Add two glasses of water.
  • Close the pressure cooker lid.
  • Let the meats cook completely.

2. When the meats are fully cooked after 60 to 90 minutes, open the pressure cooker door, separate the meat juice from the meat and onions, and mash the meats completely with a meat grinder.

You should pay attention to the fact that the ingredients should not be visible, and all the ingredients should be completely crushed.

3. Then, we add the peas, beans, and lentils, which we have soaked overnight, to the pot and cook until fully cooked.

We put the peas and beans in one pot and the lentils in another until they are completely cooked. Because lentils cook faster than peas and beans, we separate the pots.

cooked beans

4. After the beans are fully cooked, take about two spoons of the beans, pour them into the meat pot, and beat them together. This will make them taste bad.

5. Then we go to cook the rice. In this step, we choose a large pot because all the ingredients are supposed to be mixed in this step. The rice should be half-grain so it is easier to mix with the ingredients.

We proceed to the next step once the rice is fully cooked and soft. We pour all the ingredients we cooked before into the rice pot: the beans, meat mixture, crushed beans, lentils, and juice.

Finally, we add the chopped vegetables to the ingredients. Cover the pot and let it boil.

6. At this stage, we add a bit of fox to the ash so that the ash becomes sticky and perfect and all the ingredients become elastic.

After about 30 minutes, when the ingredients are cooked together, and all the beans have reached the cooking stage, our Shirazi vegetable is completely ready.

During this half-hour, constantly stir the soup so it doesn’t stick. After the soup is completely cooked, pour it into the dish of your choice and serve it with fresh lemon and Sangak bread
