Alternatively, toss pomegranate seeds with shredded kale, toasted pinenuts and a poppy seed vinaigrette for a fresh winter salad.
Add pomegranates to your favourite smoothie, or consider making your own fresh juice with them. To juice, add the seeds to a blender and gently pulse a few times to break apart the seeds to extract the juice. Don’t blend too much or else the seeds will break up and make the juice cloudy. Strain out the seeds and membrane and you’ll be left with deep, red juice. You can also juice them with a juicer. If you like, add a bit of honey or date sugar to sweeten with a squeeze of lemon for a tasty juice that’s full of Vitamin C and antioxidants.
Use a pomegranate juice reduction as a sauce or marinade for a delicious steak or pork chop and top with a sprinkling of pomegranate arils for some great textures.
Fall and winter is the ideal time for cozy comfort foods and squash is a wonderful addition to any meal as a main course or side dish. Garnish with pomegranate arils, pecans and feta to finish.
