Pomegranate molasses is a rich syrup that’s used in traditional Middle Eastern cooking and helps give this lamb recipe a really nice sweetness. Plus with the addition of fresh pomegranate seeds too, it’s got a lovely crunch with the sweetness too.

Pomegranate seeds are really low in calories but are a great source of fibre, vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin K as well as a whole host of other vitamins and antioxidants. Pomegranates have great anti-inflammatory properties too and can help protect against diseases like cancers and Alzheimer’s.
