Freekeh is a green grain made from young durum wheat which is roasted or smoked then polished to remove the shells
The grains are pale green/brown and similar in texture to bulgar wheat. They have a rich, nutty, smoky flavour. An excellent addition to soups and stews, salads and pilafs, freekeh can be cooked like rice or barley and works well as a stuffing. Wholegrain freekeh is good for those following a low-Gi diet. It contains higher levels of dietary fibre and protein than standard wheat and is a source of calcium, potassium, iron and zinc.
