Give a tasty new grain a try with this Healthy Greek Freekeh Salad recipe! This uber easy salad is a total breeze to make and is ready to rock your side dish game with some serious whole grain power.
I’ve been riding the quinoa train around here hardcore lately, but decided to mix up my go-to Greek Quinoa Bowl recipe a bit with a sassy new dressing and a whole lotta freekeh! The grain swap was glorious and perfect vessel for the bevvy of veggies I loaded it up with.
So yeah, freekeh.
Pronounced free-kah, freekeh channels the chewiness of brown rice, the lightness of bulgur, and a smoky nuttiness that might make you reconsider the quinoa or rice next time you whip up a bowl full of grains and veggies. It’s light enough to shine as side dish or lunchtime fare but hearty enough that you won’t be clamoring for something else to eat 30 minutes later. I love it!
Cracked freekeh is the most common and toastier than it’s whole counterpart, but both are equally delicious. Cracked freekeh comes in a few different forms and cooks much quicker. SOLD!
Also? It’s a nutrient powerhouse! Each serving boasts 6 grams of fiber and protein respectively, and is high in calcium, iron, and zinc. Yes please!…
