The few times we don't get Fesen-Joon, we often get Bud-m-Joon
* Bud-m-Joon $13.00“Eggplant paradise” with tomato, split peas, saffron, sautéed onion, hint of cinnamon,
and other spices, served with basmati-saffron rice and a side of shirazi
Our colleague ordered the Bud-m-Joon and invited us to take home its leftovers. I served it today stuffed inside a baked carnival squash half. I also baked butternut squash and served it with just a bit of Earth Balance margarine.
We received in our online farmer's market delivery today some beets with greens; the greens are actually more nutritious than the roots. These greens weren't in the best shape, so were better to be cooked than eaten raw. I made a simple saute of most of the greens from the bunch, chopped into about 1" lengths, along with tempeh and a little bit of red onion. A few tomato slices added a little bit of raw color and completed the meal. The Bud-m-Joon went great with the squash - in fact, I think this is now my favorite way of eating this tasty dish from Sage!
