Pomegranates: a pain in the you know what to open but worth every minute once you get to the jewels.
Sweet, juicy, fantastic. I get slightly giddy every time I see them in the market this time of year.
Besides being delicious, they are just so beautiful.
I was first introduced to the fruit back in middle school, when weekends meant sleepovers at my friend Kayva’s house, full of late-night gossiping, Bollywood movies, and pomegranates. I had never seen a pomegranate before but was hooked the moment I tasted the seeds. Never mind that I would come home covered in pomegranate juice, lips and fingers stained as well. While I haven’t seen Kavya in over 15 years, I still think of our sleepovers whenever I buy a pomegranate.
This quinoa is the perfect blend of juicy, sweet & salty. I like to called it Christmas Quinoa, a beautiful blend of red, green, and white. Like most of my grain salad combos, this one stays fresh in the fridge for days. Great for packed lunches or a side dish for the Holidays.
