Aash-e Reshteh (Aash: pottage and Reshteh: noodles) is a richly textured soup. Since it has at least three of five-a-day nutritions (noodles, beans, herbs and leafy greens like spinach and beet leaves), it is known as a complete meal. In Iran it is traditionally served on Norooz, the Iranian New Year and on the third day after friends and relatives have gone away on a trip. It was believed that by eating noodles we can send the travelers luck as they follow the path of their journey. But it is such a delicious meal that you cannot wait for any occasions to cook it. You can have any time of the day, any time of the year!
Aash-e is topped and decorated with fried mint (Nanaa Daagh), crunchy fried garlics and onions (Sir & Piaz Daagh) and sour whey (Kashk).
