VSG: Immune (Balance)

Pomegranate Millet Tabouli

 

SERVES: 4 PREP TIME: 25 MIN Gluten Free | Soy Free

Ingredients:

• ½ cup millet, dry
• 1 cup water
• 1 cup parsley, minced
• ¼ cup fresh peppermint, minced
• ¼ cup cucumber, diced
• ¼ cup sweet onion, diced
• 3/4 cup pomegranates arils
• ¼ cup pine nuts
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste

Raw Variation: Replace cooked millet with sprouted millet or even quinoa!

Tip: To avoid mushy millet, be careful not to overcook.

Tip: Add just enough salt to highlight the richness of the pine-nuts and sweetness of the pomegranate.

Directions:

1. Combine ½ cup of millet with 1 cup water in a medium saucepan, bring to a boil, then cover and let simmer for 20-25 min. When the millet is soft, fluff with a fork, cover, and let rest for 5 min.

2. Meanwhile, using a large bowl, combine lemon juice, olive oil, onions, cucumber, parsley, peppermint, pomegranates, and pine nuts. Stir in cooled millet, and add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve as the perfect side dish to compliment any meal!
