Farikah, freekeh - roasted green wheat
Fabulously good for you! Three times the fibre of brown rice, packed full of vitamins and minerals, very filling (so great for a diet) and low in gluten as the grains are harvested before this develops.
It is well used in the Middle East, especially Eygpt and Lebanon, with recipes dating bcak hundreds of years.
The smoky flavours of freekeh call for stronger seasonings: cinnamon, cardamom, and fresh coriander are all good. It can be made into a pilaf, used as a stuffing or makes a great accompaniment to grilled meats. And you can get it from us now!
