Q: I had sabzi at an Afghan restaurant and I'd like to replicate it at home. It had chopped spinach, green onions, and garlic spiced with hot red pepper flakes, little seeds (cumin?), and other mysterious spices (dill? mint?). Know a recipe?

Editor: Yum! Sounds fantastic. I found a few recipes for Afghan sabzi online, and they mention coriander and dill as the main spices. Try starting there and tweak as you go.
