Iran has long been renowned for its culture and its rich cuisine. But when it comes to vegan Persian food, I am really not sure. Without a shadow of a doubt, Iranian dishes are unique and rich in flavor and of course, incomparable to any other type of cuisine. Having heard from my vegan foreign friends who traveled to Iran, I now understand their struggle to find a vegan dish in restaurants thereby perpetuating this idea.
Knowing tons of dishes from all around Iran inspired me to start creating my smallest share of impact here to bring to people's tables some of the authentic Persian vegan dishes. For some dishes in this category I have only been inspired by those dishes adding a modern halo and contemporary appeal to replace those ingredients that are hard to come by. And some are completely non-Iranian vegan dishes that have been my healthy food staples for years.
