Ash-e Anar (Persian Pomegranate Soup)
I found this recipe online and have cleaned it up for easy directions. Very traditional and wonderful flavor. Play around with spices to increase the heat as desired.
Recipe Summary test
Add pomegranate seeds to each bowl individually, not to the stockpot, as they will soften rapidly and lose their red color.
Other herbs you could use instead of parsley or mint: celery leaves, cilantro, chives, or green onion.
You can substitute or leave out meatballs for a vegetarian option. Use vegetable broth instead of chicken stock.
