So the beautiful pomegranates are out and about (or oot and aboot as apparently we Canadians say). I have such a nostalgic memory of pomegranates as I fondly remember my brother Simmah carefully peeling the tough skin back to expose the bright red fleshy seeds and offering a handful to me. Ahhhhhhhhh. What a nice brother.
So here’s my recipe that I’ve been making for years (with updates as the years go by). It’s super fresh and a bit chic (le freak) and all the cool kids are making it.
Pom Pom Salad
1 large organic fennel bulb, chopped
1 organic pomegranate, seeded
2 cups organic quinoa, cooked/sprouted
1/4 cup organic parsley, chopped
1/2 organic apple, chopped
1 organic lemon, juiced & zested
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
3 tbsp hemp hearts (optional)
Himilayan salt & pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and eat ’til your heart’s content.
