When it comes to all things food and nutrition, we know what’s up. And right now, what’s up is freekeh! This grain is positively ancient with a ton of nutritional benefits and uses. First things first, what is Freekeh? (Pronounced free-kah). Well, in short, it’s wheat.
Freekeh is easy and versatile to incorporate into your diet, and it works well in both savoury and sweet dishes. Use it anywhere you’d use whole grains, like quinoa, brown rice, farro, bulgur, or wheat berries. When you think of how to use it, think of rice. It’ll go with anything! Below are some suggestions on meals you can incorporate Freekeh in when cooking at home.
- Freekeh chickpea and herb salad
- Roasted Freekeh with carrot and dill
- Za’atar beef and Freekeh
With its charming nutty taste, protein count, and next-to-no-effort kind of prep, one thing’s for sure: Freekeh is freakin’ good to have lying around.
