Bulgur, Sweet Potato, and Pomegranate Grain Bowl

with blood orange and shallot vinaigrette

$9.95 per serving

A decade ago, pomegranate was the hippest fruit in the bowl. It may have lost a little of the "cool" it once had, but these sweet and tart seeds make an excellent addition to this grain bowl. And let's not forget the blood orange, which has great citrus flavor and a great name. (And it looks really cool when you open it; you'll see!) Tossed with bulgur wheat, sweet potato, and a shallot dressing, this bowl makes it hip to be square.
