Best Ever Pomegranate Pecan Rice Pilaf: delicious vegan-glutenfree rice pilaf made using onion, ginger, pecans, spices and studded with beautiful pomegranate pearls. It’s a MUST on Thanksgiving or Christmas or can be a great side dish in any of your party menu.
This Pomegranate Pecan Rice Pilaf is one of my MOST requested vegan dishes on the Holiday menu. Be it Thanksgiving, Christmas or even New years eve dinner.
It tastes amazing, looks stunning and pairs well with all kinds of other recipes on your menu.
Also, with so many other laborious dishes/preps for the Holidays, this recipe is fairly easy to make and pleases everyone.
Spices: All-Spice, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Star Anise
” The combination of pecans with pomegranate is DIVINE “
And then mixing it with pecans, flavorful spices and I made this one using vegetable stock (you can use water too). The Pomegranate Pecan Rice seriously tastes heavenly.
No seriously, imagine biting into those delicious red jewel-like poms arils along with nutty pecans and melt in your mouth rice —-Totally Yummm!!!
The recipe is fairly simple, you just need to cook rice, spices, and pecans along with vegetable stock or water and then once the rice is cooked.
Just add heaps of fresh pomegranate seeds and mix the rice using a fork (gently).
The key to the Pomegranate Pecan Rice is mixing the pomegranate lightly once the pilaf is ready.
If you push or add any force, the pom arils will blister and that will make your rice look kinda mush and a weird red color that no-one wants to eat that.
If you plan to make this dish for a potluck or even office lunch, just keep the pomegranate separately and mix just before serving.
So, go ahead and enjoy the Pomegranate Pecan Rice recipe and I’m submitting it for Meat Free Mondays.
