Khoresht-e Gheimeh

Tonight we had Persian food. Typically most dishes take a long time to make but I had some khoresht (stew) in the freezer so this was an easy meal. The khoresht I make is a recipe I've come up with for the crockpot - it makes it simple. It's usually made with a bit of beef or lamb but I use eggplant or sometimes zucchini and yellow squash. We had this with persian-style rice, plain yogurt (Wildwood Soyogurt - plain - it's the best!), and some homemade flatbread. It's traditionally served with homemade french fries on top - but we like the little french fried potatoes on top (I've found some at Cost Plus that don't have partially hydrogenated oil). We usually have a plate of fresh mint, basil, onions etc but alas, I didn't feel like going to the store for the fresh greens.
