Ash reshteh (Persian: آش رشته‎) is a type of āsh (Iranian thick soup) featuring reshteh (thin noodles), kashk (a whey-like, fermented dairy product), commonly made in Iran and Azerbaijan.

There are more than 50 types of thick soup (āsh) in Iranian cooking, this being one of the more popular types.[1]

The ingredients used are reshteh (thin noodles), kashk (a whey-like, fermented dairy product), herbs such as parsley, spinach, dill, spring onion ends and sometimes coriander, chick peas, black eye beans, lentils, onions, flour, dried mint, garlic, oil, salt and pepper.[2] This is a soup that is vegetarian but can easily be made vegan by omitting the kashk; alternatively, meat can be added.

Traditional Ash reshteh is served at special Iranian events, like Nowruz, Sizdah be-dar or during winter time.[1][3] The noodles are supposed to symbolize good fortune for the new year.[4]
