What is Freekeh?
So glad you asked! Freekeh is a process which means "to rub" in Arabic. 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 "Eureka!" Freekeh was created. We're proud to offer you this tasty, nutritious ancient grain with a funny name.
So what do you do with Freekeh?
The question should be... what can't you do with it? We love it in soups, pilafs, salads, you name it! There really is no wrong way to Freekeh! So go ahead -- unleash your imagination and make it your own. Adopt it, fall in love with it.
