Freekeh Recipe

In case you haven’t tried this delicious, healthy, LOW GI-Food, Freekeh is young, ancient grain – greenwheat.

I cook it like brown rice:

Boil 1 cup of Freekeh with 5 cups of water.

When water is boiling, cover pot and simmer for 45 min.

Lovely nutty flavour.

Then I mix in seeds of 1/2 Persimmon (the ruby-looking gems in the picture),

roasted almonds, shallots or chives, coriander, basil, or whatever you like the taste of

(e.g. pine nuts, goats cheese, haloumi, roasted pumpkin or sweet potatoe…)

Add juice of 1/2 lime or lemon, 1 tbsp. olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

I served it with Beef fillet and rocket salad.

It was yummy!

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
