Herbal Souffle - Kookoo Sabzi

8 large eggs
1 teaspoon spoon white flour
1 tablespoon red currants; (zershk) or cherries
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts; (gerdoo)
1 teaspoon spoon salt.
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup cooking oil or butter
1/2 cup fresh chives/scallio, finely chopped (tarreh/piAzcheh)
2 cups finely chopped fresh parsely; (jafaree)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro OR; (gheshneez)
2 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 cup fresh or dried dill weed; (sheveed)
1/2 tablespoon dried fenugreek; (shanbelileh)

Soak the currants in cold water for 15 minutes before cooking. Drain before adding them in.

In a bowl add the eggs, 1/2 of the cooking oil and all other ingredients, with the exception of fresh and dried herbs. Beat it with a fork until the ingredients have been mixed well.

Add the herbs, and stir the mixture until the herbss have blended in (do not beat it any longer due to the delicate nature of fresh herbs).

Put the oven setting to bake at 250 degrees (F). Pour the remainder of the cooking oil in an oven safe dish. Pour the herbs mixture in the dish. Bake at this setting for about 40-45 minutes. You may cover the dish with aluminum foil at the beginning to prevent over-drying of the top crust. Remove the foil half way during the baking process.

Cut in square pieces before serving.

Prawns with Wheatberries (4)
Ingredients
1.5 lbs. or 600g Large Prawns, peeled
4 tbsp. wheat berries or pearl barley
4 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
2 squeezes lemon
2 green peppers
6 tbsps fresh coriander leaves
sea salt & black pepper

1 garlic clove, crushed to a paste with salt
1½ tsps cumin seeds, freshly ground

Instructions...
Place the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl, stir together, then add the peeled prawns. Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

While the prawns are marinating, cook the wheat berries or pearl barley. Put in a small saucepan, cover with 1 litre of water and simmer over a medium heat for about 45 minutes until tender.

Now warm the wheatberries in a saucepan with the prawns and any extra marinade over a medium heat until just hot.Spon the warm prawns, wheat berries and any extra sauce on top of the peppers and serve immediately.
