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!
