    looks like a really good combo of flavors. I’ll have to hit the store when our winter storm is gone ;) and try it on the family. YOu have the BEST ideas!

    it looks super yummy Roni! I want to make it when I get home for winter break. I love your sweater by the way, the color looks great on you!

    I made this, Roni, from your “idea”, and it WAS delicious! I think I need to make it again…I have all the ingredients. I’m nuts about pomegranates now, too. I’ve bought 3 of them this year, and I’m going to pick up 2 or 3 more tonight when I grocery shop. I love your ideas and they’re always right on. THANK YOU!

    Roni -

    This is an AWESOME mix of flavors. I made it w/ brown rice, fresh ginger and onion. I left off the soy sauce, just to really cut the salt, and the ginger really popped.
    Thanks for introducing me to how to use pomegranate!

    I tried this today. OMG! It was wonderful! I need to play around some more with cooking bulgur though. This was my first time using it and I think I may have overcooked it because it was a bit sticky. I will definitely be making this again though. I was sad when the bowl was empty! LOL

    OMG RONI!!! This dish is AMAZING!!! Not only was it delicious but it was so easy to cook. It took me like only 5 minutes. This will be a dish that I’ll try making for the family. The flavors and smells made me feel that I had just ordered it from a chinese restaurant.

    Roni-
    I made this tonight and it was soo good! I am not a huge fan of peas so I substituted Edamame! YUM! It made me feel healthy eating it cause of all the benefits of soy and pomengranate! I will definitley be making this again!

    I made a few adaptations, as I didn’t have all the ingredients – namely fresh garlic and ginger and a pinch of chilli powder. The result was totally delish. My 6ft 18 year old “toddler” loved preparing the pomegranate as much as your little boy. We also made garlic mushrooms to go with it.
    This is a sure fire winner – pity there is only another month that pomegranates are in season ( yes we are now into them). Porridge (we live in Scotland, so its a staple) with pomies, demarara sugar, and a tablespoon of cream is so wonderful.

    Now next dilemma- which recipe next? Sweet potatoes?

    Tune in tomorrow…..

    FANTASTIC RECIPE which I found looking for an entree using the pomegranates from our tree in the garden. We already had left over rice in the fridge so we used that instead of bulgur. Other modifications included finely chopped onions instead of the powder and a mixture of chopped fresh parsley/coriander instead of the dried herb. Our garlic was also the fresh stuff. I can tell you that it was deeeeelicious. Thanks for the recipe. Keep Kookin’ :-)

    I’d never had a pomegranate before two years ago. So sad, 25 years without them, and then…it took another 2 years before someone told me that it was okay to eat the seeds! I didn’t know that, I thought you just sucked the juice off. Is there any nutritional value to eating the seeds though? This looks like a fabulous idea.
