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!
