Freekeh Lightly Toasted Cracked Wheat 400g

Freekeh is a highly nutritional green-brown grain made from durum wheat and adds a delicious rich, nutty flavour to soups, stews and salads. Its nutty flavor and chewy texture make it a versatile ingredient in both savoury and sweet recipes. Feel free to get creative and experiment with different combinations and flavours to suit your taste preferences.

Try freekeh in:
  1. Pilaf: Freekeh can be cooked in a pilaf-style dish, similar to how you would prepare rice pilaf. Sauté some onions and garlic in olive oil, add freekeh, and then cook it with vegetable or chicken broth until it’s tender and fluffy.
  2. Salads: Freekeh can be used as a base for salads, similar to quinoa or bulgur. Cook the freekeh, let it cool, and then combine it with fresh vegetables, herbs, and a dressing of your choice. It adds a nutty and chewy texture to the salad.
  3. Stuffings: Freekeh can be used as a stuffing for vegetables like bell peppers, zucchini, or tomatoes. Mix cooked freekeh with herbs, spices, and other ingredients like nuts or dried fruits, and stuff it into the vegetables. Bake until the vegetables are tender and the stuffing is heated through.
  4. Soups and stews: Freekeh can be added to soups and stews to add texture and flavour. It can be simmered with vegetables, legumes, and spices to create a hearty and nutritious dish.
  5. Side dishes: Freekeh can be served as a side dish alongside roasted meats, grilled vegetables, or other main courses. Cook it in broth or water, season it with herbs and spices, and serve it as an alternative to rice or couscous.
  6. Breakfast porridge: Freekeh can be used to make a warm and comforting breakfast porridge. Cook it with milk or water until it becomes soft and creamy, and then sweeten it with honey or maple syrup. Top it with nuts, fruits, or spices like cinnamon for added flavour.
