Onion-Poppyseed Bialy Recipe

Kuku Sabzi: Persian Herb Frittata Recipe

The ratio of herbs to eggs is much higher than a typical omelet or frittata, making it ideal for when you’ve got a fridge full of greens that are about to go bad. This recipe calls for cilantro, dill, and parsley, but feel free to experiment with other greens you may have on hand.
