Add the pomegranate seeds and toasted almonds to the rice, reserving a tbsp of each.

Add the raw shredded greens ( or lightly steam if preferred ) or if using leftover cooked sprouts, thinly slice these before adding to the dish.

Tear or shred any leftover turkey into bite size pieces and add to the rice. Mix all together.
