The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to try Pomegranate tabouli Recipe. Enjoy the Middle Eastern Cuisine and learn how to make Pomegranate tabouli.

It’s lucky a pomegranate has thick skin – it protects the hundreds of jewel-like seeds inside. Try their sweet, slightly tart taste in desserts and Middle Eastern style dishes, such as this fresh, colourful tabouli.

Preparation Time 20 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

90g (1/2 cup) burghul
185ml (3/4 cup) boiling water
1 cup chopped fresh continental parsley
3/4 cup chopped fresh mint
2 pomegranates, quartered, seeds removed
3 shallots, trimmed, thinly sliced
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs fresh lemon juice


Place the burghul in a large heatproof bowl. Add the boiling water and set aside for 10 minutes to soak. Drain.

Add the parsley, mint, pomegranate seeds, shallot, oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.


Serves 4 as a side.

Cook’s tip: To remove seeds from the pomegranate, cut it into quarters. Place one quarter in a bowl of cold water and soak. Use your fingers to gently remove the seeds. Repeat with remaining quarters. Drain the mixture and discard peel and white pith.

Know-how: Pomegranates keep for up to a month in the fridge or fruit bowl.

Add pomegranate seeds to a sugar syrup. Drizzle over ice-cream or natural yoghurt.

A good source of dietary fibre and vitamin C, pomegranates also contain a range of valuable anti-oxidants.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
