This dish celebrates the coming of summer with its fresh herbs. It's a dish special enough to serve honored guests, but also simple enough to be used for any family meal.



In a food processor, blend spinach, cilantro, parsley and leek to a fine chop and set aside.

In a pot over medium heat, sauté onions in oil for about 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, turmeric, cinnamon, carrots and mushrooms. Sauté for an additional 2 minutes. Transfer chopped greens to the pot, stirring constantly for about 5 minutes.

Add water, black-eyed peas and lime juice and simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes.

Serve over your favorite grain. Traditionally, this dish is served over white basmati rice, like any other Persian stew. Serves 4 to 5.
