About this recipe: A yummy way to enjoy freekeh and easy to make for those who've never tried it before. Freekeh is fire-roasted baby wheat and has a distinct flavour. Find it in larger supermarkets, health food shops or Middle Eastern shops.
More liquid may be added to obtain desired tenderness. You may need to stir more frequently towards the end of cooking. I like to cook it until the sauce is thick and freekeh is tender.
First of all, I just got a massive bag of freekeh and was pretty dismayed to find out that out of the thousands of allrecipes there is just....one...containing the word freekeh! :/ So thank you to the creator of this recipe. Of course I tried this! It is cheap and easy to make. However, I think "stirring occasionally" is a bit of an understatement. It might just be my poor-quality pot, but the recipe began to stick to the bottom of it after about half an hour. I had to stir every couple/few minutes. Maybe it is because the recipe does not specify whether we simmer with lid on or off (I did off)? I topped with emmental! - 08 Apr 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was really good. I'm not a super health nut but am gradually trying to become one and so I pleasantly surprised that I liked this so well. It will be a regular at my house. - 26 Feb 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was ok. I never cooked freekeh before so I was unsure of what the consistency should have been. It was sort of like half cooked rice. The flavor wasn't bad. Not sure if I would make this again. - 19 Feb 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
