What is Freekeh?

Definition: Freekeh

Also known as farik or frikeh, freekeh (pronounced "freek-kah") has been gaining traction in Western cuisine. Freekeh is an Arab grain made of young green durum wheat that's harvested when the seeds are yellow, and still soft and moist. They are then sun-dried, roasted, polished, and cracked.

This smoky-flavored green wheat contains high fiber, high protein, four times the fiber of brown rice, and almost no gluten. It's been traced by to Biblical times and is still popular today in the Middle East. Have you ever cooked with it?
