I don't need to tell you that pomegranates are incredibly healthy and filled with all kinds of amazing vitamins and minerals. This dish is supersimple. Just toss wild rice with pomegranate seeds, chopped pistachios, and a bit of red onion, and you have a tangy and flavorful side dish that is filled with cholesterol-lowering fiber and cancer-fighting antioxidants. Tossing the toppings with the hot rice slightly cooks the onion. Such a tangy and easy side dish. Try it tonight!
