    Hi Helen,

    I’m happy to hear you enjoy our recipes! You should be able to find the fresh herbs in the refrigerated section of the produce section of most supermarkets. I usually start by looking for green onions and find other herbs nearby.

    One of my go-to vegetarian/vegan ingredients are Better than Bouillon No Meat products. You can use these to replace different broths, or just add flavoring that is more akin to the original dish than a standard vegetable broth would be. You could use this to replace the chicken broth, and maybe add a little bit of the no-beef Bouillon to mimic the beef flavor as well. Then just skip the beef portions of the recipe and add the beans directly to the herb mix as the recipe instructs. You could also make meatless meat balls out of beyond/impossible meat or lentils/grains to replace the meat instead of fully omitting it.

    For side dishes I would recommend rice or flat bread, as well as yogurt, pickled vegetables, or a Shirazi salad.

    After doing a little research it seems some regions add tomato paste, fried potatoes, or substitute different bean varieties.

    I hope this helps, and happy cooking!

    Hi Evie,

    Correct me if I’m misunderstanding, but it sounds like you want to substitute the whole omani lime for ground omani lime. If that’s the case, then we recommend using 1 tablespoon to start and add additional ground omani to taste.

    The photo of the jar of Omani Black Lemon is shown, but when one clicks on the recipe, the jarred spice isn’t used in the recipe. I already have the jarred spice and don’t want to have to also buy the separate Omani Black Lemons. How much of the spice can be used in the recipe instead of the 5 dried Omani Black Lemons?

    Hi Ann, Thank you for your questions! This recipe would freeze well since the greens are already cooked down. I think adding ground coriander and black pepper would be great! Kirk Customer Service Associate Oaktown Spice Shop
