The Freekeh Cookbook

Healthy, Delicious, Easy-to-Prepare Meals with America's Hottest Grain

About The Book

Freekeh is a tasty, versatile grain that’s packed full of fiber and protein. Freekeh was created by accident nearly 2,000 years ago when a Middle Eastern village was attacked and their crop of young green wheat was set ablaze. Most folks would sulk over their misfortune, but the crafty villagers rubbed off the chaff, cooked it up, and the result was freekeh! With 8 grams of protein per serving, it is quickly gaining popularity in America as a healthy grain that tastes great and keeps you fuller for longer, aiding in weight loss.

This beautifully photographed cookbook showcases dozens of ways to incorporate freekeh into every meal of the day. Recipes include:

Almond Cookies with Cocoa Nibs
Cardamom Freekeh Bars
Curried Freekeh Crackers
Freekeh ‘n Cheese
Moroccan lamb with Dried Fruits and Nuts
Pistachio Encrusted Shrimp with tamari Frekeh
Raspberry Freekeh Pancakes
Roasted Pumpkin with Chicken Apple Sausage and Kale
Stuffed Heirloom Tomatoes
Tandoor Chicken with Curried Eggplant Freekeh
And More!
