Freekeh (Smoked Green Wheat)

850 g

Cousin of bulgur, the smoked green wheat called Freekeh is very tender with a sweet and slightly smoky taste. A very flavorful grain well known and used in oriental cuisine for millennia. It is part of many recipes, savory or sweet.

Supergrain with a cool name. It is also known as frikeh or farik, from the family of cereal. It is made from green durum wheat, harvested during its youth.

It works wonders in a lot of recipes. It makes a fantastic salad with a smoky grassy and chewy texture. It is delicous in soups, pilafs, and casseroles. It can also be your cereal or oatmeal for breakfast or a parfait mixed with fruit and yogurt.

It can also be a great rice alternative or substitute it for your quinoa recipes or any hearty grains, for that matter.

This new yet ancient grain can be included in your family's healthy dishes.


How to Cook Freekeh:

Plunge in salted boiling water for 10 minutes, 1 part freekeh for every 2 to 2 1/2 parts water.

Healthy and tasty
Love it. It tastes real good with an earthy, nutty taste and chewy texture. It's just a bonus that it's relatively healthier than rice. I use it in my salads and soups and I get to have that fill without actually craving for rice. Very nice for the diet.
