Many thanks to Bob’s Red Mill for sending me a sample of Freekeh. It’s an organic whole grain that they say is a, “flavorful, high-fiber whole grain food made using a traditional roasting method.” It’s smokey flavor and chewy texture are unique. It’s apparently the traditional grain of the Middle East.
Last night I soaked a half cup of beans (a variety pack). This morning I added them to the slow cooker with a half cup of Freekeh, onions, peppers, carrots, zucchini, a little olive oil, and salt and pepper. I cooked on high for about three hours in the slow cooker. I’ll have to say, the jalapeño from our garden was especially hot! This gave the meal quite a kick! Loved it! In fact, the whole family devoured my vegan lunch.
I highly recommend this “grain of discovery” from Bob’s Red Mill. Isn’t it amazing you can live your whole life and never know about all the food in the world?
