    This salad has the perfect combination of flavours and textures. It's also quick and easy to make. Baby greens are tossed with pomegranate seeds and feta in a lemon-Dijon dressing. An excellent side salad to go with summer barbecues.

    A simple salad, which has the perfect combination of flavours and textures. Tender lettuce, salty pistachios and sweet pomegranate seeds are tossed together with a tangy dressing.

    This is my take on the classic Iranian fesenjoon or fesenjan stew featuring duck legs instead of chicken. It still has the classic ingredients of pomegranate molasses and ground walnuts, making it every bit as exotic as it sounds. I'm assuming like most similar recipes, every household has their own version, and this kind of thing can easily be tailored to your tastes.

    This is a Persian dish of chicken stewed in a pomegranate and walnut sauce. As they do in Iran, serve Khoresht Fesenjaan with white rice.

    This is such an easy pud to make, but looks unbelievably impressive. That, combined with the fact that you can easily make everything ahead of time and assemble at the last minute, makes it the perfect dinner party dessert. Did I mention that it's healthy, too?

    A fabulous festive martini made with vodka, pomegranate juice and topped up with soda water. You can try topping it up with cava or sparkling wine, if you prefer the taste! It looks beautiful and tastes just as good!

    A wonderful change from the average apple crumble. Apples and pomegranate seeds are topped with a buttery crumble, before being baked to perfection. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    I created this the other day after being sent a sample of pomegranate molasses and wanted to use its sweet and sour flavours in something cooked, so I could see whether the molasses tasted good, or not. It got the family seal of approval so it cannot be too bad! Finding simple family food is great as it makes cooking from scratch easy and satisfying as children will eat these sort of meals without fuss and complaint - every parent's dream.

    Pomegranate seeds blend deliciously with chillies and fresh herbs. This bittersweet salsa is often found in Mexican cuisine.

    This dessert is lower in fat and calories than the classic fruit fool. It's made by layering ripe mangoes with Greek yoghurt, pomegranate seeds and honey. Simple and delicious!
