Tomato Freekeh

Tomato Freekeh

Nesreen

"Freekeh is fire-roasted baby wheat. It can be found in international or Middle Eastern stores. It can be used to replace rice. It has a very distinctive flavor. Any veggies or spices can be added to this recipe. This freekeh recipe will have a thick tomato saucy consistency. It has a slight kick, too."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Rinse and drain freekeh. Place freekeh in a bowl with enough water to cover; soak for 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Stir vegetable broth, water, and olive oil together in a large pot; bring to a boil. Stir freekeh, tomato paste, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt, and black pepper into vegetable broth mixture; bring mixture to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer freekeh mixture, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 1 hour. Remove freekeh from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • 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 ...

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.

Made this today. A delicious flavor powerhouse. Love it!

This recipe was great! It was my first time making freekeh. It smelled smoky and delicious and we enjoyed it with a dash of Chipotle Tabasco!
