Thermomix Pomegranate Brown Rice Salad
This Pomegranate Brown Rice Salad uses the Pomegranate Molasses from the Salad Collection as a dressing. To make the Pomegranate Molasses I first use these Thermomix instructions to peel my pomegranate and make the juice. Then I continue on with the recipe in the Salad Collection cookbook to make the molasses.
This recipe is one that was inspired by Sia’s mother-in-law Skevi. She takes a lot of time and care when preparing food, especially salads. She cuts each ingredient so that it is exactly the same size. When collecting the seeds from a pomegranate, Skevi will sort through each seed to ensure that there is no white peel. No seed is ever wasted or lost during the process. Sometimes, Skevi will also include a spoonful of honey to add sweetness and a handful of roasted walnuts, which is a family recipe from her Thea Andre in Cyprus.
The full pomegranate brown rice salad recipe is exclusively featured in the Salad Collection cookbook. For that reason, the quantities and steps are not listed in this blog post. However a list of ingredients is provided to help you with your shopping list and meal planning (especially helpful if you use the paprika recipe app) and also some tips.
Here is a list of ingredients you will need to make this recipe.
