"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!
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.
