OliveNation Freekeh cracked wheat is an ancient grain, originally cultivated in the Middle East. Young green wheat is harvested and roasted until golden yellow. The seeds then go through a ‘rubbing’ process that cracks the wheat and releases its smoky, nutty flavor. Freekeh has a firm, chewy texture similar to bulgar.
Freekeh is considered a superfood. It has more than three times as much dietary fiber as other grains. It is also high in protein and a rich source of lutein, which have been shown to help with good eye health.
Freekeh cracked wheat is a staple in Middle Eastern and North African cuisine. It can be cooked with cinnamon, dried fruit and pistachios and served as a hot breakfast cereal. Freekeh Pilaf made with sautéed garlic and onions; seasoned with cinnamon, allspice and fresh mint and parsley is a great side dish with lamb.
How to Prepare Freekeh: Soak 1 cup of freekeh in cold water for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse well. Place in a pot and add water according to your recipe. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Remove lid and fluff with a fork.
