Vegetarian Foods in Iran!
Post from Saboktar By Maryam Raha
If you are a vegetarian and planning to visit Iran, the food might be one of your biggest concerns. Many people suppose that Iranian food is all about Kebabs, so finding yummy Iranian vegetarian foods is a big deal while traveling in Iran. However, this idea is not true!
Don’t worry about being a vegetarian while traveling to Iran! Be sure that you might gain weight in Iran but not lose even a gram!
First tip: Know Iranian food and get the part you can have!
First of all, I should say that Iranian general cuisine is a combination of rice with a stew called Khoresh. Different stews have different mixture of beans, herbs, vegetables and meat, chicken or fish. People usually have the stews as a sauce for the white rice.
To be honest, although these stews are mostly non-vegetarian, trying them is a part of your Iranian cuisine experience. Therefore as a help, some restaurants cook the meat and chicken separately and just add it to stew when they are serving it. As a result, you can easily order your stew meat/chicken free!
