Impressive bright pink seeds

My best friend, Jill, is the sort of amazing hostess who can prepare a complicated dish from a two-page magazine recipe, while simultaneously chatting about life, work and spouses and drinking a glass of red wine.

She’s multi-talented like that.

I admire her for tackling all kinds of Bon Appetit-esque recipes I would never be willing to try.

One time several years ago, she made me a fancy salad with pomegranate seeds because she knows I like entree salads, and she was willing to tackle seeding a pomegranate, a complicated six-step procedure involving cutlery and a bowl of water (interested in the how-to? You won’t find it here on Minnesota Transplant because though I watched Jill successfully accomplish this task, I’ve never tried it myself. But check it out here.)

All this to say: I found pomegranate seeds at the farmer’s market on Sunday. Not pomegranates, just the seeds. Someone had already done the hard work.

So I enjoyed them on my oatmeal yesterday, and it was delicious!

The yummy oatmeal has raisins, chopped pecans and cinnamon in it, topped with plain yogurt (sweetened with Splenda). Garnish with pomegranate seeds.

  1. Monica – you are no slouch of a cook yourself and so sweet to compliment me! Yes, I did do the water method but would gladly buy just the seeds if I saw them in the store (2 kids in multiple activities and busy career = less time to seed a pomegranate). 🙂

  2. Hmmm … over oatmeal! What a great idea! I actually, without a how-to tutorial, suffered through seeding a pomegranate, and ate them right out of the bowl. I can’t say that I was all that impressed with eating them alone. But I’d be willing to go through all that work again if I find other foods to eat the seeds with. I’m going to try the oatmeal.
    Thanx for this post! 🙂

  3. Looks delish and the seeds are very healthy. A real easy way to de-seed is to throw the pamegranite against a wall!!!!!
