Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 F), line a baking tray with foil. In a large bowl, stir together all the ingredients (except for the pomegranate glaze) with your hands. Form into about 15 golf-sized balls and arrange on the foil lined tray. Place into the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and brush with some of the pomegranate glaze using a pastry brush. Bake again for 5-10 minutes. Set aside until you've made the pilaf (or in the fridge overnight if you're making this a day ahead).
