Light Sabayon With Pomegranate And Pistachios

Autumn has finally arrived and soon Foodfulife will turn two years old! Yep, two years ago I decided to start this incredible journey and Foodfulife is still going strong! To celebrate I will dedicate three recipes to the pomegranate, a wonderful fruit that contains important nutriments that can help us to boost our immune system during this season.

Pomegranate is rich in vitamins A, B, C; it contains minerals including potassium and phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, iron and important antioxidants such as flavonoids and phytoestrogens. It has anti-aging, anti-oxidising and anti-cancerous proprieties and it may be effective in reducing the risk of heart related diseases.
Pomegranate is also a very versatile fruit to use in recipes; its delicate flavour is sweet and slightly sour and it can be used in sweet as well as savoury dishes.
