Persian Zucchini Kuku

Vegetarian Frittata

Persian Zucchini Kuku

I absolutely love this vegetarian Kuku. The Persian word Kuku translates to Frittata. This dish is an absolute favourite snack or quick lunch in Iran. The perfect summer serving.

Every household have their representation of this dish. My mother always used to prepare the herby kuku full of her fresh garden herbs.

Being prevailed to start my own organic garden recently – I am constantly thinking of ways to use the beautiful harvests from my garden. Also to use the abundant of eggs I receive from my two gorgeous chooks, Lola and Leilah.

This recipe I am about to share with you can be a perfect starter or cold lunch wrapped in pitta bread. Add fresh rocket and Persian feta on top… and enjoy!

Enjoy creating, sharing and indulging!
