Panir Bereshteh, Persian Cheese and Egg Dish

Panir Bereshteh is a famous veggie recipe from Gilan (Northern province of Iran). This healthy and delicious recipe is a combination of feta cheese, butter, egg, dill and spices. Panir Bereshteh can be served as a light dinner lunch, appetizer or side dish.

Yield: Serves 3-4

  • 150 g feta cheese, broken into pieces (If cheese is too salty, soak in cold water for 1-2 hour or until your desired level of saltiness and then drain)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried dill
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • salt

Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the cheese and stir until cheese melts. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the dill, turmeric powder and eggs, and stir until thickens (about 10 minutes). Taste and add salt if needed.
