Jay and I saw a special all about this roasted grain on the Dr. Oz show a few months ago, but we have had the hardest time finding it! Our local Whole Foods didn't even carry any. I had pretty much given up, when I accidentally spotted these pre-packaged bags at Sprouts over the weekend (and they were on sale!). I grabbed two different flavors to work into our dinners for the week.
Freekeh is prepared in a similar manner to other grains. Simply use one part Freekeh to 2 1/2 parts of water or broth—bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until tender.
Last night, I used our tamari flavored Freekeh to make this roasted sweet potato stew from freekeh-foods.com.
If you're lucky enough to find Freekeh at your local grocery store, you should definitely give it a try!
