This meal-in-itself makes a great party dish with a side of yogurt. From the Simply Natural Café Organic Restaurant in Miami Fla. They have a wonderful menu of organic, vegetarian and vegan dishes. I have not made this but it sounds yummy so put here for safekeeping. Adapted from “In a Persian Kitchen” by Maideh Mazda .

Made a nice brunch served with side warm whole grain bread. We really liked the taste and texture the walnuts gave this meal. Made as written baking in a spring form pan, think next time might play with step 3 and put the veggies in the pan and then pour the egg over the top instead of mixing in a bowl before panning. Thanks for the post.
