"The idea here is hardly original," says Sibley. "The combination of ingredients is age-old. Grains, pulses, pistachio nuts, pomegranate and goat's curd are all quite Middle Eastern in origin. This is a delicious and nutritious dish to serve as either a shared starter or a side dish."
Note Pomegranate molasses is available from select Middle Eastern grocers and delicatessens. This recipe is from New Classics ($49.95, hbk) by Philippa Sibley, published by Hardie Grant Books. It has been reproduced with minor GT style changes.
