Afghan Sabzi: A Delicious and Simple Vegan Afghan Dish

  • Author: Mirriam Seddiq


This Afghan Sabzi (spinach) recipe is super simple and 100% vegan. You can serve this as a side or a main if going meat-free.



3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil

34 Lbs Frozen Spinach

2 Teaspoon Black Pepper

2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Tablespoon Cumin/ 1 Tablespoon Coriander

2 1/2 Onions

5 Cloves of Garlic


1. First, pour 3/4 Cup of vegetable oil into hot pan.

2. Next, add onions to hot oil.

3. After this, add your garlic after the onions show a little bit of light brown color.

4. Add your frozen spinach next. I prefer to thaw my spinach and let some of the excess water drain off before I cook it. But, it is totally fine to add it frozen it’ll just take longer to cook.

5. Allow the onions and garlic to mix into the spinach.

6. After cooking for a few minutes, add your salt, pepper, and cumin/coriander mixture

7. After cooking for about 5 minutes cover the spinach and let simmer for about 10 minutes.


Serve with some salata, naan, and some rice.
