Last week I posted about a new ancient grain that I tried called Freekeh. I really like this product and I have been experimenting with a few recipes. I came up with a delicious Greek Freekeh Salad and I wanted to share it with you! Continue reading
Hmmmm….What?!? That’s right, I tried Freekeh and it is one of my new favorite grains! You may be wondering what Freekeh is. Freekeh is an ancient roasted grain that has an awesome nutty, chewy texture. What’s more, Freekeh has up to 3 times the amount of fiber and protein as brown rice and is naturally low in sodium and it’s vegan! Not to mention that it is certified organic, Non GMO, and grown in the USA.
So what do you do with Freekeh? So far I have used it in my chicken stir fry and made a Mexican salad with it. Yum! It would also be great in soups, pilafs, salads, chilis, stews etc…The possibilities are endless!

This is on of my favorite side dishes to make. Sometimes I even add some grilled chicken and eat it for lunch. I love it because it is simple to make, only has a few ingredients and is packed with protein, fiber, iron, magnesium, B2, folate, calcium, zinc, Potassium, and Vitamins K and A (to name a few!!!). Did you know that quinoa contains more vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants than any other grain? It does! Spinach and mushrooms also contain abundant nutrients so you can’t go wrong with this dish! Here’s the recipe:
