Green Stuffed Bread Lavash


Green stuffed bread lavash for Easter table. Another must food for Armenian Easter table are sautéed greens. My grandma used to sautee at least three or four different greens on Easter. My most favorite was mandak or as they call it in English : chrysanthemum. Very fragrant, with slight sweetness , that specific green was always on our Easter menu. And I loved having my sautéed  greens wrapped with Armenian bread lavash, so combining the two favorites in one dish turned out to be a good idea, therefore the dish I want to share is mandak stuffed bread lavash, or however you want to name it:)
