Pomegranate Beetroot Compote


Makes 1½ cups

If you really want to make a splash, this vibrant compote will bring a touch of earthly sweetness to your holiday table.

Bring shredded beetroot, pomegranate juice, and brown sugar to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes, or until beetroot is tender, and juice is syrupy.

Stir in pomegranate seeds and spice blend, and cook 5 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Transfer to bowl to serve.
