They also give so many great tips throughout the recipe like “You can save the ends of your chives and scallions in a jar with an inch of water! They’ll regrow!” and “You’re going to make a mess — it’s ok!” Check out the recipe and all of Shahgheibi’s cooking tips here.

Also, in this fifteen minute video posted in the same blog post, you can learn more about the four-hour stew recipe that their Dad made while they was growing up plus a fun story about how Shahgheibi first found the Coop when they were new to town. Shahgheibi also gives some information about the UP Center of Champaign County, upcoming pride hikes, support groups, and more.
