How to proceed
Preparation: approx. 30 minutes
Bring the water with the rice and salt to the boil and simmer over low heat for approx. 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat, cover the rice and let it swell on the hot plate for approx. 10 minutes, until the rice has absorbed all the liquid. Shell the rice with a fork and let it cool a little.
Meanwhile, cut the onion into thin rings. Peel half of the clementines and cut them into round slices of approx. 5 mm thick. For the vinaigrette, squeeze the rest of the clementines and mix the juice with the balsamic vinegar and oil, then season with fleur de sel and pepper.
Mix part of the onion rings, clementine slices and pomegranate grains with the still-hot rice. Plate and garnish with the rest of the ingredients. Sprinkle the salad with vinaigrette and serve it with watercress to taste. Delicious with crunchy chia and oat bread.
