freekeh foods

Have you heard of Freekeh Foods?  I just recently learned about this product that is typically available at Whole Foods as well as other health food stores.  Freekeh was created nearly 2000 years ago!  Freekeh is a roasted green wheat, so those gluten free like myself will have to avoid it; however, my husband was happy to try it out!

Freekeh is known for the fiber it provides 8 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein, not to mention it’s low fat too.  Freekeh cooks up very similar to rice and also comes in a variety of flavors including our favorite, Rosemary.

When I first saw this grain it reminded me a lot of quinoa as far as being able to substitute it in much like rice and add to any meal.  Then, I quickly learned that it is a great substitute for both rice and quinoa plus boast healthy factors like the extra protein and fiber!

Freekeh can be added to a variety of recipes virtually anything really.  A few that are great to add it to include Chicken Fried Rice, Beef & Veggie Soup, and Slow Cooker Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes.
