Mt Zero Freekeh 500gm - Produce of Australia

An ancient grain, freekeh is made from young, green wheat that is traditionally roasted over wood fires to burn off the husks, giving the grain a lovely, nutty flavour.

Freekeh’s originates from the Arabic word ‘faraka’ (meaning ‘to rub’) which refers to the traditional method of rubbing the husk away from the dried wheat. It is then left to dry further and either cracked or left whole (i.e. wholegrain).

Freekeh is a wonderful alternative to rice or couscous. Use it warm served with a long slow cooked meat dish spooned over it, or cold as a salad with raw veggies, or warm with roasted vegetables. Add nuts and seeds for even more goodness.
