Now is when you toss some chicken broth in there. Be SURE to do this. You could use water or veggie broth too, but you need something to dilute the pomegranate, which boils down to a very tart and flavorful glaze.
But it can get a little too tart if you don’t dilute it.
You don’t want to look like you’re sucking a lemon, you know?
In about 30 minutes, your kale should look like this
And that’s when you add the za’atar.
And continue boiling the greens until the sauce gets syrupy and the house smells sweet and savory. You can boil it as long as you want, but it shouldn’t take more than 15 more minutes, tops. Don’t worry, the green’s won’t get mushy. These babies really retain their texture and the flavor just develops more and more.
And talking about flavor..WOW! This is perfect for someone who thinks they don’t like veggies. It is sweet, it is savory and it is delish. The pomegranate makes an incredibly sweet and tart glaze, and the greens take on that sweetness. The greens’ natural mineral taste and earthy flavor blends with the wholesome chicken broth to temper the juice’s sweetness, and the za’atar adds this citrusy, savory, nutty zest to the whole dish.
And THAT’S how you get creative with POM Wonderful!
