Freekeh is a whole grain wheat product that originates in the Middle East. Young durum wheat is harvested whilst it is still green, roasted over an open fire then threshed to remove the straw and chaff. When cooked it has a nutty, slightly smoky flavour, and is chewy and satisfying. If you tolerate wheat it is a fantastic high fibre grain that you can serve instead of rice. I like it with curries, stir fries, stews or salad.
Free from: nuts, soya, yeast
This is a vegan recipe
I use about 1/3 cup dry freekeh per person. Cover freekeh with plenty of water and boil for about 15-20 minutes. It is ready when it is soft and chewy.
Drain and serve. If making a big batch, refrigerate or freeze portions.
