Celery & Herbs Stew - Khoresh Karafs

Celery & Herbs Stew - Khoresh Karafs

This classic Persian recipe is popular in spring when celery (karafs) is in season. Here in Australia we are lucky to be able to enjoy celeries all year round. Celery stew is traditionally made with lamb or beef, here I substituted the meat for exotic mushrooms to make this dish even healthier.


4 stalks of celery, chopped

1 Onion (Feel free to skip if you are on Low FODMAP diet)

400 g Shiitake Mushroom

4 King Oyster Mushrooms

(or 500g of any mushroom of your choice)

1 Jar or Exotic Bazaar's Ghormeh Sabzi Recipe Base

Optional: 1Tbsp dried mint


1- Slice the onion,

2- Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Fry the onions until golden.

3- Chop the celeries into 4cm thickness, and Dice the mushrooms into bite-size chunks.

4- Add the celeries and mushrooms in with the onion and fry for five minutes until veggies or softened a bit

5- Add one jar of Ghormeh Sabzi into the pan plus half a jar of water.

6- If you have dried mint at home, add1Tbsp of dried mint to the pot.

7- Let it simmer on low for 20 minutes untill all flavours combined.

Enjoy Your Exotic Night & Happy Feasting :)
