Hi Everyone!
A fun collection of products from a brand called Freekeh Foods.
This Organic freekeh roasted grain wheat comes in three flavors in Original, Rosemary Sage, and Tamari.
It's a alternative to Rice and other grains.
I love that it's high in fiber and protein (up to 3 times the amount found in rice), certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified.
It's tasty and good to serve for a healthy dinner option along with veggies or meat/meatless product!
Favorite flavor would be the Original so then you can add own own favorite spices to the mix!
I like the product packaging too, it's very colorful, and bold.

What is Freekeh:
Freekeh? What is that?
So glad you asked! Freekeh is a delicious roasted grain that is a great alternative to rice or other grains. (It has an awesome nutty, chewy texture and we offer it in 3 varieties: Original, Rosemary Sage, and Tamari. What's more, freekeh has up to 3 times the amount of fiber and protein as brown rice! How's that for a no brainer?
Here's the legend of how freekeh came to be...
Freekeh is a process which means "to rub" in Arabic. Freekeh was created by accident over 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!  You can substitute Freekeh in any recipe that calls for rice or quinoa. There is really no wrong way to "get your Freekeh on."™ Adopt it, fall in love with it and tell us what you have created with Freekeh.
