Organic Cracked Freekeh is young green wheat that has been roasted and cracked. This traditional food of the Middle East has a pleasant nutty flavor and cooks in just 25 minutes. A high-fiber whole grain, freekeh is perfect for savory salads, spiced pilafs and hearty hot cereal. What is freekeh? Green wheat freekeh is a flavorful ancient grain that cooks up quickly and tastes delicious. Freekeh (also known as farik or frikeh) is the name for roasted young wheat, and it is a traditional food of the Middle East and Northeastern Africa. In addition to its high fiber content, our organic freekeh wheat supplies 7 grams of protein per serving and is a good source of magnesium.
Freekeh has a subtle smoky flavor and pleasantly chewy texture, which makes it ideal for satisfying side dishes like salads and spiced pilafs. To make a simple freekeh salad, toss the hot cooked grains with lemon juice, olive oil and fresh herbs. For a hearty hot cereal, try a bowl of cracked freekeh topped with milk, honey, nuts and fruit.
