Freekeh is a fantastic grain that's produced in a unique way. It's a young wheat that's harvested when it's still green, then using a large blow torch, the whole kernels are roasted and effectively burnt before threshing to reveal the green wheat inside the husks. This results in a delicious grain that's slightly chewy with a nutty, smoky and earthy flavour.
Freekeh is also an extremely healthy grain, it's high in fibre with three times as much protein as brown rice and is excellent at promoting good gut health.
To cook freekeh you simply wash the grain in cold water, soak for 15 minutes (optional) and simmer in twice it's volume of water with a pinch of salt for 20-25 minutes.
