If you’ve given up on stovetop rice methods, you’ll love this hands-off oven technique.


Pomegranate Relish

  • ¾ cup pomegranate seeds (from about ½ large pomegranate)
  • ¾ cup Castelvetrano olives, pitted, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh mint
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed into a paste
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

Rice and Assembly

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 8 ounces feta, sliced ¼-inch thick

Ingredient Info

  • Pomegranate molasses can be found at Middle Eastern markets, some supermarkets, and online.

Recipe Preparation

Pomegranate Relish

  • Place a rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 350°. Toast walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once, until golden brown, 5–8 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop. Increase oven temperature to 450°.

  • Toss walnuts, pomegranate seeds, olives, oil, mint, parsley, pomegranate molasses, and garlic in a medium bowl to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

Rice and Assembly

  • Combine rice, butter, and salt in a 13x9" baking dish, then pour in a scant 3½ cups water; top with mint sprigs. Cover tightly with foil and bake until rice is tender and water is absorbed, 30–35 minutes. Remove from oven; pluck out mint. Fluff rice with a fork.

  • Heat broiler. Arrange feta over rice. Broil until rice around edges of pan is browned and crisp and feta is starting to brown, 8–10 minutes. Spoon pomegranate relish over.
