Not only are these unique lamb turbans beautiful to look at, they are delicious too. A tasty combination of lamb, onions, tomato, and pomegranate with toasted pine nuts is wrapped up and baked to perfection in these stylish appetizers shaped like turbans.


Special Ingredients

  • Dibs ruman (pomegranate molasses), can be found at specialty markets or online.


Prepare Ahead

The turbans can be refrigerated for several days or frozen for several weeks. Freeze uncovered on a plastic-lined baking sheet, then store in an airtight container. Reheat thawed turbans at 350°F for 5 to 7 minutes.
