Spoils from the Persian market
A coworker suggested I look into Wholesome Choice, a Persian market in Irvine. I'm so glad I checked it out, because look at these nommables!
First off, the barbari bread. I was looking at the ingredients on the package when the baker asked me if I wanted a fresh one...hells yes!
Although the ingredients list checked out, I noticed it had unlisted sesame seeds, so I double checked that there wasn't any egg/milk in it. Mm, nope, it's just a simple and wonderful bread.
Opened up, it's golden and perfect:
Yummmmm. Armed with flat bread, I needed to get some hummus. Fortunately, they were having a sale and these were pretty cheap at 2 for $3 and in a flavor I hadn't seen before... veggie tomato?
I also finallllllly got some chickpea flour. And despite knowing that I'll probably be the only one eating them, I got some red lentils (who doesn't like lentils?! The boy, apparently).
They were also having a sale on these biscuits. I love Indian biscuits so I figured these would also be good. We'll see about that tomorrow.
The next post ...the red lentil stew / curry I made! I'm so happy, it's been a long time since I had lentils. They are still one of my favorite legumes!
