Zaytoun Smoky Freekeh 200g details and description
Smoky Freekeh - flame-roasted green wheat - ideal for pilafs, risotto, soups or salads.
Freekeh is durum wheat that is harvested whilst still green and roasted on an open fire. It's then rubbed (farked) to remove the husk and remove an aromatic grain packed with protein and fibre. Rich in flavour and texture. Traditionally freekh is slowly simmered in stock for a nourishing soup - a Palestinian staple for centuries. This freekeh comes from Palestine.
At Zaytoun, their fairly-traded produce comes exclusively from farmers they know, allowing them to support farming families, as they build a sustainable future.
To cook: Wash thoroughly simmer for 30 minutes.
Ingredients: Durum wheat. Packed in an environment where gluten, nuts and sesame seeds may be present.
Store in a cool, dry place.
This freekeh is fairly traded and is one of our few grains and pulses not organically certified.
